About Us

Bottomley Design & Planning has been located in Oakland, California, since its founding in 1999. Our professional staff is trained in city planning, urban design, architecture, and landscape architecture. We provide a range of services that are mutually supportive. Urban design principles inform planning policies, and community development objectives guide physical design.

He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), Urban Land Institute, American Society of Landscape Architects, and American Institute of Architects, and is a California-registered Landscape Architect. From 1987 to 1999, Mr. Bottomley was principal planner and landscape architect-of-record for Freedman Tung & Bottomley.
