Who We Are

Nott & Associates Inc. is a full-service architecture, interior design and construction firm.   We specialize in renovations and additions of historic and luxury custom homes.  We work primarily in South Pasadena, San Marino, Pasadena and La Canada.  Our emphasis is custom residential construction.  We also have completed numerous commercial and multifamily projects.


In the last 40 years Nott & Associates has designed and or built over 550 projects in Southern California.  We have created many masterpieces and earned numerous design awards for historic restoration.

Because of our years of experience, we work out designs quickly and efficiently.  During design development we are in constant contact with our clients, the building department and necessary consultants to build exactly what our client wants.

Our years of experience give us the ability to enter a home and determine solutions quickly and efficiently.  Our knowledge and understanding of government agencies and the building code allow us to streamline projects through to approval.  We educate our clients, explaining the process and any issues that may come up.

Our construction crews and sub-contractors are skilled tradespeople who take pride in their work.  During construction we coordinate and supervise all trades to get the best out of each project.

Nott and Associates is a family run firm that has contributed to the fabric of the San Gabriel Valley for the last 40 years.

Tom Nott was born and raised in Los Angeles.  Tom graduated from USC School of Architecture in 1965.   Tom’s son, Jeff Nott grew up in South Pasadena and started working on job sites as a teenager in the summers in the late 1980’s.

After College Jeff started working with Tom building homes.  In 1996 Tom and Jeff started Nott and Associates in South Pasadena where they have been for over 25 years.  Jeff’s 3 sons, the third generation of Nott and Associates have joined the team working at the jobsites over the summers.

We have a history and track record you can count on.  After all these years we have seen and built it all.  Our team forms a relationship with our clients and educates them to get the best out of each project and create a beautiful home they will enjoy.
