December 5, 2018

The SAI Programs home office is located in California’s Sonoma Wine Country, in a small town called Sebastopol.  “Only an hour north of San Francisco, Sebastopol offers small town charm, farm-to-table organic food and wine, creative artists and healers, and easy access to the Laguna, the Russian River, Sonoma coast and Redwoods” boasts the Experience Sebastopol website.  

The SAI offices have been located in Sebastopol since 1995.  Our current offices were built in 2002, replacing what was originally a tired, old warehouse. The office now reflects a modern design that mirrors the excellent design programs for our students in Italy, Spain, and France.
