Peartree+Belli Architects

is a service-first architectural firm based in Salinas. We work on varied commercial projects in Central California and beyond, with an emphasis on the educational and agricultural sectors. Our team includes a dozen enthusiastic design professionals known for solving problems. The Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce recognized our community engagement by naming us Outstanding Small Business of the Year.

Second-generation architect Lino Belli founded our company in 1994. He grew the business with his wife and former firm CFO, Teri Belli. The civic-minded couple built lasting client and community partnerships across the Salinas Valley. Now retired, they remain active in local nonprofits and Lino still shares his 45 years of architectural experience with our team.

David Peartree joined our firm as a project manager in 2010. A decade later, he joined Lino as a principal. David completed an ownership transition to become the firm’s sole principal in 2022. As a team, we’re proud to continue this company’s 30+ years of success.

Today, much of our work comes from repeat clients. Whether we’re helping familiar faces or new partners, we have fun collaborating and creating practical design solutions.
