DVB is a full-service, hybrid architecture and branding firm. We believe that creativity and technical expertise belong together, and that a physical space and brand are seamless and beautiful when created in tandem. Our practice brings together experts in architecture and branding to provide a unique experience for our clients and, ultimately, the people who experience each design.


We provide a full range of architectural and branding services for new construction and remodel projects. We work in a range of industries to provide clients with smart, constructible interiors and exteriors, and creative, on-point brands for new and updated businesses. We’ve experienced firsthand the importance of creating space and brand together, and provide two seemingly disparate services that ultimately lead to stronger and more cohesive results.

We focus on architectural and branding services for hospitality projects, fitness centers and tenant improvements. A sampling of our client brands includes Crunch Fitness, Holiday Inn Express, Days Inn, Hampton Inn/Hampton Inn & Suites, Residence Inn, La Quinta, Best Western, United States Army Corps of Engineers and Options for Youth.

Firm strategist Liz Divelbiss spent her career building strong brands as part of a marketing agency team prior to merging these skills into DVB architecture’s offerings. After seeing how many companies needed both architectural and branding services, it became clear that the strongest and smartest way to do that was through one coordinated team who could provide seamlessly branded spaces as part of the process of designing new interiors and exteriors. Liz is a graduate of Leadership Sacramento and serves as president of a nonprofit organization.
