Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design is a Marin based architecture firm lead by the husband and wife team of Brad Hubbell and Suzanne Daily.
Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design was incorporated in 2003. Since 2016, Brad and Suzanne have been working exclusively at HDA, having followed their entrepreneurial instincts to own and manage their own firm. They have enjoyed taking on residential projects ranging in size from moderate and whole-house remodels to new homes. HDA has a growing body of projects throughout the Bay Area.
At HDA our philosophy is creativity, communication and collaboration. To every project we bring innovation, structure and process, making sure that client education and communication are at the center of each project. A collaborative process with clients, consultants, builders and fabricators creates an energized and impassioned exploration of options, enabling a clear understanding of appropriate solutions. Being transparent and working collaboratively results in uniquely designed projects that run smoothly and get built on budget and on time.
HDA projects come in a variety of styles reflecting our clients’ desires and the characteristics of each site. Working in a variety of styles keeps HDA’s work fresh and interesting. In addition, environmentally responsible materials and design elements play key roles in the decision making process throughout the project’s life.
From an early age, Brad had his sights on becoming an Architect. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Studio Art from Tulane University, he worked for Sausalito architects Barbara Brown and Henry Taylor. He then attended University of Washington where he received his Master in Architecture degree. Brad returned to California to begin his career with the firm of Michael Rex Architects where he learned the value of detailing, design and materials. While at Polsky Perlstein Architects, Brad honed his project management skills and developed his designing and technical skills. In his 25+ years of architectural design, Brad has worked on projects from San Francisco Victorians to contemporary modern homes and is drawn to projects that demand creative solutions to meeting clients’ style. He enjoys a collaborative approach to projects, working closely with other trades and the clients to achieve creative and unique solutions to every project.
Suzanne also followed her passion for design and architecture from an early age, studying architectural drafting and the arts throughout Jr. high and high school. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. A native Californian, Suzanne stayed local and appreciates the variety of California architecture and the beauty of our natural landscapes. She endeavors to find innovative ways to connect the built environment to nature both physically and visually. Her experience includes working for firms such as Geoffrey E. Butler Architecture and Planning, Thompson Studio Architects, Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, Backen Gillam, and Michael Rex Architects. She enjoys projects that present a difficult problem and coming up with a solution that far surpasses the client’s expectations.

His attention to detail and unwavering dedication to the necessary methods to execute a flawless project are talents that he dedicates to each project he embarks upon. His expertise working with international artisans and sourcing rare materials has allowed him to build an enviable professional network. As the most recent addition to Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design, Alessandro brings with him more than a decade of experience working on commercial and residential projects not only in Italy and the USA but all over the world.
The daughter of a construction aficionado for a father and social worker & art lover for a mother, architecture seemed like the natural fit for Valerie.
Born and raised in Carolina, Puerto Rico, Valerie studied Environmental Design in the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras and is now finishing up her M.Arch Degree in the University of California, Berkeley. In P.R, she worked for Coleman Davis-Pagan Arquitectos as an architectural designer, where she was involved in a range of projects, from new constructions, renovations, and restorations; dwelling in public works, single-family residences, and urban design projects.
Being familiarized with concrete construction techniques in Puerto Rico, Valerie became increasingly interested in reimagining different traditional construction methods and materials in new and exciting ways. By joining Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design, she looks to further her career into residential architecture as she also aspires to a life in art and education.
Her traditional Indian heritage and the modernity of her home, Dubai, have taught Pearl to appreciate architecture as a way of cultural and personal experience. This, along with her admiration of art, inspired her career in architecture.
Pearl is a recent graduate from the University of California, Berkeley. She majored in Architecture with minors in Sustainable Design and the Social and Cultural Factors in Environmental Design. She is passionate about creating a more sustainable way of building and about creating spaces that impact people’s minds and health positively. Having interned at firms in various industries such as fashion and real estate in the past, Pearl has explored various types of projects outside the realm of architecture as well. At Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design, Pearl hopes to learn more about architecture and thinking creatively in environmental design.
