Allied Arts is known for its stunning Spanish architecture. Designed by renowned architect Gardner Dailey who worked closely with artist Pedro de Lemos, Allied Arts features all the red roof tiles, archways, courtyards, and wrought iron work that the Spanish Colonial style is known for. Many of the original wrought iron pieces and details are still in use and visible in the Guild’s buildings today.

After a two-year renovation by Cody Anderson Wasney Architects Inc. of Palo Alto and Blach Construction of Santa Clara, the Guild was re-opened in 2004. The renovation focused on maintaining both the architectural and historic relevance of the complex, while also extending the life of the buildings for future generations to enjoy. The renovation project received the American Institue of Architects Santa Clara Valley Chapter 2006 Honor Award for Preservation/ Restoration as well as the California Preservation Foundation 2006 Preservation Design Award.
