ARCH for architecture art & design

The bold new black and white graphics of ARCH on the corner of Missouri & Seventeenth streets is a reminder of the joy of shopping at unique local stores with individual personality.

ARCH has supplied materials to San Francisco’s architects, designers & artists with a wide range of architectural drafting and model building supplies for over thirty years. The original store was almost a secret destination on a Jackson Square side street where architects purchased their tools of the trade.

The tiny chic drafting supply store originally known to only architects evolved over the years to a large fashionable store.  Well priced art supplies, drafting supplies, gifts, papers, bookbinding supplies, model making supplies, presentation materials, design books and items that rival museum stores and fine boutiques can all be found at ARCH.

The artsy friendly sales staff will help you find exactly what you need to complete your next art or design project. Be sure to have a list when you visit because the selection and display of the large old warehouse style space can be distracting. Located only blocks away from INSTUDIO, you may run into INSTUDIO interior Design Directors Samuel Fleming Lewis & Stephen Kladder shopping for supplies.
