About Us

East Beach Ventures was a full service architectural firm based in Santa Barbara.  Its principal, Pete Ehlen, practiced architecture in Santa Barbara for over 35 years.  The firm’s modest size was intentional, allowing Pete to be intimately involved with every project.

The firm’s philosophy reflected the unique relationship with each individual client.  It was the client’s project – not the architect’s.  There was no standard style that got applied to every project.  Rather, each project had it’s own individual solution and architectural style reflecting the unique client. The joy was in the journey, which we shared side by side with our clients.
