Milton Tong

Tong Architecture provides full architectural services and green consulting for residential and commercial projects including new houses, remodels, additions, kitchens and baths.

I offer expertise in both traditional architectural styles as well as modern architectural design, and in every project, strive to find the best architectural solution to suit the client's aesthetic and needs. In remodels and additions, the design is informed by and enhances the structural geometry, spatial flow and architectural character of the existing building. I offer expertise in sustainable design, and design indoor and outdoor spaces to be in harmony with the natural environment, and built to use materials and resources in an environmentally responsible manner.

My design process is client-centered and collaborative. I take pride in providing personal attention and quality professional service for every client. I work closely with clients to exchange ideas about program, budget, wishes and concerns so that the project becomes a realization of their dreams.

I encourage the early involvement and collaboration of consulting engineers and professionals and the contractor. Creative dialog and a team approach is an ideal strategy in finding efficient solutions and best technologies for a well coordinated and well built project. Construction drawings are thoroughly detailed for effective cost control and ease of building.

Located in El Cerrito, CA, I work with homeowners and businesses throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Milton Tong started his career with a background in fine arts, and approaches architecture with an artistic sensibility and passion.

He was also an architect at Cheng Design and Construction, providing complete design / build services for contemporary residential projects and custom interiors design. This broad range of experience in project and construction types, and architectural styles enables flexibility and creativity in approaching design and finding the appropriate solution for each unique project.
