About Aspen Street Architects

Our Mission

Our mission is to operate at the cutting edge of Architecture and Design. It is our goal to keep up with the newest technology to provide our clients with the highest level of service, design, and technical expertise. 

This process begins at the early stages of first contact, we take the time to observe and listen, then carefully research, program, and plan in order to provide affordable and accessible architectural services from rural communities to heavily populated cities.

Our History

In 1977, David Hitchcock ventured to the Sierra Nevada Foothills from the Bay Area and opened up an architectural practice serving the Bear Valley and Arnold areas, thus establishing Aspen Street Architects, Inc. Aspen Street Architects was the first and only practice, for multiple years, in Calaveras County. Designing and constructing the majority of the homes at Bear Valley Ski Resort in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, the firm quickly outgrew the initial office, finding a new home on Aspen Street in the high sierra town of Arnold, California, hence the name Aspen Street Architects. This marked the beginning of a company that would find its strength in personal, small town, rural California.

Our Community

Aspen Street values our rural roots and appreciates any opportunity to be involved in giving back to our community. Aspen Street sponsors a variety of groups intended to fund our local businesses, schools, kids’ leagues, senior centers, community vendors, pregnancy centers, food banks and more.
