About

Elliott F Brainard, Architect has been creating unique designs for people who want to live and enjoy an inspired lifestyle in natural environments. Based in Mammoth Lakes California for over 20 years, designs are conceived by listening to the specific needs of each person and adapting those needs to each setting. This design sequence makes every building “one of a kind.”

There have been a wide variety of designs created for many people’s lifestyles. The rugged mountain environments of the California and Nevada Eastern Sierras have been the background for many projects. However, opportunities in beach and desert landscapes have resulted in very different interpretations for living.

Some commercial and recreational works have been developed using the methods of adapting to each setting. These include two motor sports facilities, a destinations spa/resort, numerous restaurants, motel/hotel and retail buildings.

Elliott F Brainard has a Bachelor of Architecture (BA) degree with a minor in English from Cal Poly Pomona in California. He has a National Council of Architects Registration Board (NCARB) license and is practicing in California, Nevada and New Mexico. Diverse experiences have allowed him to be a Planning Commission member and participant on many design review committees. He was sustaining member in the Rotary Club for 15 years and has been involved with many community events in the Mammoth Lakes area and other regions.
