William Leddy, Marsha Maytum and Richard Stacy began collaborating in the early 1980's in San Francisco. Since then, they have created a diverse collection of architecture that has been consistently recognized by the profession and the press. Today, the partners of LEDDY MAYTUM STACY Architects continue their dedication to architectural excellence. The firm is structured to ensure a close collaboration between the partners and the talented individuals on their staff.

Principal, LEED Accredited Professional

William Leddy brings a clear vision to complex contemporary projects, integrating new technologies and advanced sustainable practices into buildings that are timeless in their design.

Many of his clients are radically rethinking how we house, educate and provide social services in the 21st century. Bill has a unique ability to engage these ideas, see the project from the client’s point of view, then synthesize the resulting questions into elegant design solutions.

Rather than applying a signature style to every project, Bill is interested in the creative possibilities that arise when the clients’ needs and the unique conditions of site and circumstance inspire the design response. He believes in creating lasting buildings that are firmly anchored in their time and place.

Through this forthright and strategic approach, Bill provides the leadership required to guide forward-thinking projects, many of them the first of their kind. He is known for his deep technical engagement with his projects and his conviction that great design is a fundamental social justice issue.

"We’re interested in carefully crafted, inspiring environments that help show the way to a just, regenerative future for all."—William Leddy

Marsha Maytum excels at building partnerships around a shared set of values, bringing together clients and collaborators to create new environments for living, working and learning.

She combines an inclusive process with a high level of rigor and questioning in research and project development. Before the advent of greenbuilding certification, Marsha pioneered sustainable architecture practices with clients, engineers, manufacturers and subcontractors. Together they developed practical applications for resource-efficient building systems and materials that have become standard green practices today.

Marsha’s body of work has established her as a leader in social as well as environmental sustainability. Her projects enhance lives and serve communities — but their impact reaches far beyond the site itself. For example, her work adapting historic buildings for contemporary uses has become a model for how historic preservation can conserve cultural and natural resources.

Marsha chose to go into architecture at a time when there were few women in the field. Today she is considered a role model and mentor to the architectural community of the Bay Area.

"With every project, we want to do the most we can to help serve our communities and the environment around us."—Marsha Maytum

Richard Stacy’s thoughtful approach to residential and workplace design is rooted in a talent for listening closely to the needs of clients and responding with solutions of real integrity.

He sees each site’s constraints and conditions as an opportunity for fresh thinking and new methods. As a result, his projects are often complex hybrids that might integrate systems for renewable energy into a supportive housing project or multimedia tech offices into a historic warehouse.

Clients and colleagues alike admire Richard for his persistence and diligence in delivering design of the highest quality, often on modest budgets. His calm demeanor and clear thinking are critical skills for navigating site politics and keeping complex projects with multiple clients focused and on track.

Richard’s innovative thinking and attention to craft have made him a national leader in well-designed spaces for living. His work on dignified affordable housing for the chronically homeless and other disadvantaged populations is a model for the role architecture can play in creating a more equitable world.

"I’ve never felt architecture to be an elitist activity. No matter how humble the project, we put the same kind of passionate energy into everything we take on."—Richard Stacy
