Charles Huff Architect © 2013


             Charles Huff is a Pleasanton Architect with offices located in downtown Pleasanton.  He received his Bachelor of Architecture in 1972 from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and did graduate work in Urban Design at UCLA. Charles’ firm, established in 1980, specializes in residential and commercial restoration projects. Examples of these projects can be found in historic downtown Pleasanton, San Francisco, San Jose, and the Monterey Peninsula.

            To date, he has completed over 1400 residential projects in the Bay Area with over half of these projects within the city of Pleasanton. 

            He has served on the Amador/Livermore Valley Historical Society board of directors since the 1980’s.  Also he has served on the Pleasanton North Rotary board of directors and currently serves on the Valley Community Bank advisory board, as well as the Pleasanton Downtown Association Design Review Committee. 

            It was through his involvement with historic restoration projects that his interest in local architectural history began.  It started out as a hobby and has led to an avocation.  Research resources included old newspapers, local history books, local census data, and the Pleasanton Sanborn fire maps, which depict the exact locations of structures within the town.  Charles has written articles for local newspapers and other valley publications about the rich history of the valley.  He also is an adviser to historical consultants evaluating heritage homes in the Tri-Valley area.
