Will Bloomer, AIA, LEED AP
Associate

An architect, traveler, and outdoorsman, Will came to us by way of Boulder, Colorado, where he worked several years for the local housing authority. He is currently guiding the design of an innovative 100% electric modular project that will bring much-needed housing quickly to Santa Rosa. Will holds a Master of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, and he seeks out challenging and engaging work that helps him better understand and improve the world around him. He believes in effective and responsible design as a vehicle to work on the challenges of growth, energy, and equity. To that end, he helps manage DBA’s 2030 Commitment, our agreement to track and report the energy performance of our buildings. Will is co-founder of DBA_Lab, our in-house research and experimentation studio, and he’s the chief instigator in motivating our staff to go outside and sketch our city. You can contact Will at willbloomer@dbarchitect.com.

 

Erin Feeney, AIA, LEED AP
Associate

Erin is an architect focused on urban community design. She holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Washington and has a background in international sustainability research, exhibit curation, and non-profit leadership. She believes that design has the potential to enhance the sustainability and livability of the urban environment, offering comfort and dignity to city inhabitants. Erin has recently focused on a comprehensive community engagement effort for affordable housing in Seattle and seeing a 100% affordable family housing development in the Mission District through construction. She is a leader in DBA’s sustainability initiatives—including building performance modeling and life-cycle assessment—an advocate around local issues of homelessness, and a member of DBA_Lab. You can contact Erin at erinfeeney@dbarchitect.com

 

 

Jonas Weber, AIA, LEED AP
Associate / Modular Lead

Jonas joined our team in 2015, bringing more than 12 years of professional experience—including affordable and sustainable multifamily housing—and a burgeoning interest in exploring modular construction as a response to the Bay Area’s housing crisis. Today, as DBA’s Modular Lead, Jonas has completed the firm’s first modular housing project, a 243-home market-rate community in Union City. In addition to advising on the firm’s many active modular projects he is leading the modular design of a high-density supportive housing development for formerly homeless residents in San Francisco. The son of makers, Jonas has an ingrained appreciation for materiality, process, and craft that guides his approach as collaborative architect and global citizen. Away from the workplace, he is a Big Brother mentor, just completed his 13th season playing in the San Francisco Architects Engineers and Contractors Softball League and—together with his wife and two daughters—just celebrated the birth of a healthy baby boy. You can contact Jonas at jonasweber@dbarchitect.com

 

 

Laura Williams, AIA
Associate / Urban Design Lead 

With an extensive background and intensive interest in research and design of the urban realm, Laura leads DBA’s Urban Design Studio. She tackles any project in the office over one acre or with particularly tricky urban edges. Most recently she has been working on the re-visioning of aging affordable housing developments in Daly City, Alameda, and San Jose. Laura holds a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Studies from MIT, where she was an Architecture Department Fellow and Research Assistant at the MIT Center for Advanced Urbanism. She is a world traveler, licensed private pilot, and avid outdoorswoman. You can contact Laura at laurawilliams@dbarchitect.com.  

We'd be thrilled for you to join us to celebrate these talented folks.
