About this business
Onju Updegrave has been in the San Francisco Bay area since 1982, practicing architecture and completing her Masters of Architecture at U.C. Berkeley. In 2011 the practice expanded to the Boulder, Colorado area. Onju raised her family Marin County, California and established her private practice in 1997 there after being mentored by experienced and gifted architects she worked for in West Marin County, including Jim Campe, an early pioneer in sustainable building practices.
Onju's work is reflective of a lifetime of immersion in architecture and diverse cultures and environments. Her mother is an architect, she spent most of her childhood in India, and her high school years in New York City. Work and travel have taken her to many parts of the world including work in India implementing synthesized traditional and modern methods of building. Adaptive architecture is the sensibility developed from the diversity of experience in places of extreme climates, precious resources and limited physical space.
