SACRAMENTO, CA – 19six Architects, one of the oldest architectural firms in California, is proud to announce that Williams + Paddon Architects + Planners has joined forces with our team. In 1981 founders Jim Williams and Jack Paddon established Williams + Paddon Architects + Planners in Roseville, CA. From the start, they embraced entrepreneurship and innovation. They nurtured four decades of design excellence, developed strong client relationships, and grew alongside the communities they helped build. From 1981 to the present day, the Northern California-based firm has worked on many projects, most notably the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s (SMUD) Customer Service Center, the Placer County Community Development Resource Center, the Antelope High School, the Roseville Civic Center, the CSU Chico Police & Information Center, and the Placer County Fairgrounds Roebbelen Center. The firm expanded to a second office in Midtown Sacramento in 2016 and is currently working on the Heredia-Arriaga Dual Immersion School, Capitol Area Development Authority’s Sonrisa Attainable Housing, and Red Hawk Casino’s new Hotel and Entertainment Center.
“As Williams + Paddon joins 19six Architects, it truly brings together two legacies of design excellence. The joining of our two firms is exciting. There is so much added talent and expertise to this team that I am enthusiastic about our future.”
