Hofmann Architecture is THE worldwide leader in the custom design and manufacturing of beautiful, custom mobile spaces. As a licensed Architecture firm we understand design, harmony, balance and scale; valuable assets in the design of small spaces. We offer a host of services to help customers realize their small space needs and big time dreams.


As a licensed Architectural firm, we offer a full set of design services including 3-D renderings, plans, details, elevations, schedules, specifications, and more. We work with engineers, technicians, and other industry professionals to get the job done right.

Design / Build

We believe that form and function must be tied to one another, and that both must be informed through construction methods and standards. Because we design AND build, we understand the real construction issues when designing a product.


All Hofmann Architecture projects and products are manufactured on site, in Santa Barbara, California. Using CAD-based renderings, we manufacture custom parts, large and small, as components for larger projects, or as stand-alone pieces.

Interior Design

Our in-house interior designers work hand in hand with our design team. Our interior designers are a wealth of knowledge and are constantly seeking out new products, materials, and equipment that may be offered as a creative and beautiful solution.


If you don’t have a vessel yet to build a project, we are here for you. We have a network of seasoned “Pickers” located across the country and  work directly with manufacturers to source new vehicles, trailers, boats, vans, and many more.

Support Services

Once the project is delivered, you are part of the family, and we check in from time to time to see how everything is going, and assist with any issues, upgrades or dreaming. We offer a one-year limited warranty on every project we build.


From mobile offices, party buses and adventure vehicles, to guesthouses, food service vehicles and full-time residences, or even marketing and mobile retail vehicles, boutique hotel trailers and completely unique designs, we have the experience to design and build the project of your dreams.



We have expanded our production facilities globally. The custom mobile renovation trend is in full swing. We appreciate the craftsmanship of our peers around the world and have a pre-screened, tightly knit global network of professional renovators who we work with hand in hand. We will design your project and our endorsed renovators will build it out.


We work with all types of vessels to transform both new and vintage spaces into the project of your dreams.
