About Us

Planning Meets Design

In 2006, Peter Stanley and Mitch Conner combined their 30+ years of experience to form ArchiLOGIX — the convergence of design and strategic planning. Built on the belief that there’s a better way to plan and build construction projects, we are a full-service design and development consulting firm.

We’re dedicated to helping clients excel in every step of the process — from strategic planning and design to construction and post occupancy. Our entire team is here for you: to thoroughly understand your situation and achieve the best possible results. We won’t just try to bring our vision to life — we’ll help you make your dream a reality.

Peter Stanley

LEED AP Principal, Project Manager

Peter’s career has spanned much of the design and building process. He started in the construction trades before moving over into managing design and development projects for Simons & Brecht and later AXIA Architects. In 2002, he started his own facilities management and development consulting practice where his understanding of project management helped shape complex plans into reality. In 2006 he founded ArchiLOGIX, a design and development strategies consulting firm with a concentration on private development, commercial, institutional and mixed-use projects. Complimenting his career, Peter contributes his time and expertise to nonprofit organizations like the Santa Rosa Chapter of Rebuilding Together; as well as his appointment to the City of Santa Rosa’s Planning Commission; also he is the Development Director for a community building project in Nicaragua that has funded, designed and constructed a neighborhood of low-income homes including infrastructure, schools and a community center. Peter is now vice chair of Clinica Verde a medical focused international non profit committed to the development and operation of sustainable medical clinics in Nicaragua. Their first clinic was opened in January 2012 in Boaco, Nicaragua and has seen over 18,000 patients in its first 18 months in operation.

Mitch Conner

AIA; Principal Architect, Designer

Based in Sonoma County for the past 30 years, Mitch worked for Roland Miller Associates before owning and managing his own architectural firm. Later he was a studio manager for local offices for two state-wide companies: RMW Architecture and Interiors (RMW, based in San Francisco) and RRM Design Group, a multi-disciplinary firm based in San Luis Obispo, as he expanded his scope to include urban design. Mitch joined ArchiLOGIX in January 2007 as a partner and helped expand the firms focus into public safety and urban design. A nationally recognized leader in fire station design, Mitch has enjoyed a blend of public and private projects, including commercial, manufacturing, hospitality and civic projects, and more recently is also enjoying winery projects and mixed-use developments. Beyond the office, Mitch has devoted years of service to Sonoma County. He served on the board of the Redwood Empire chapter of the AIA (American Institute of Architects) where he chaired Government Affairs; served as vice-chair of the Town of Windsor steering committe dealing with the AIA sponsored Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT); the Windsor Planning Commission; the Environment Committee of the Sonoma County Alliance; and the board of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today. Additionally over the years he has been active with revitalization efforts in downtown Santa Rosa as founding president of CityVision, and on the board of the Sonoma County Cycling Association. For seven (7) years, Mitch taught classes for the fire service throughout California on topics ranging from facility programming, design, long-range planning, and project and budget management.

Marla Oveson

Project Manager

As Project Manager and industry technology geek, Marla is always ready for a new challenge. She credits the skills she acquired while enlisted in the Air Force with helping realize her childhood interest in the nuts-and-bolts of home design and launching her career into architecture and construction. Being first hired by a Sacramento Valley homebuilder, she was a member, and eventual manager, of the architectural team. She facilitated the construction of hundreds of semicustom and custom residences over 28 communities throughout the region. Transitioning her builder’s knowledge into architectural design and planning firms over the past decade, she has developed expertise as a project manager and technology leader with a diverse portfolio of project types. Recently, she acquired expertise in multifamily and industrial sectors before relocating to beautiful (and delicious) Sonoma County. Marla devoted extensive time and resources to serving the homeless population while residing in Sacramento Valley. Thrilled to be in Sonoma County, she is looking forward to providing the same service to her new home.

Dave Christensen

Born and raised in Sonoma County, Dave has been interested in the arts from an early age. He completed his general education at Santa Rosa Junior College and studied architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. Dave spent the first thirteen years of his career working on a variety of projects (with an emphasis on schools) with firms in Santa Rosa. The next phase of his career was spent working as a consultant for various architects and contractors in Sonoma County before starting work at ArchiLOGIX. His 30+ years of architectural experience encompasses working on projects of various sizes and types including schools, hospitals, restaurants, fire stations, retail stores, commercial offices, wineries, tasting rooms and industrial facilities as well as residential. Dave’s other interests include food and wine, travel, hiking and photography.

John Perry

Associate AIA, LEED Green Associate, Job Captain

John's early obsession with Lincoln Logs and Lego blocks lead him down the rabbit hole of a career in architecture, where he finds inspiration in the clean simplicity of early modernism and the sensible ingenuity of regional vernacularism. He loves reading history books and pouring over old maps to see how much the past has influenced the present. Originally from Cape Cod, college took John to Oklahoma then the Netherlands. He insists that Oklahoma was a far stranger place than Holland, though the accents are about equal. After a few years of working in Denver, he weathered the recession at grad school in Boston, where upon receiving his degree he again packed up and moved to San Francisco. Spending a few years working in multifamily in the City, he finally moved to Sonoma County to make his favorite vacation destination his full-time home.
