Places must be useful, fun, interesting and meaningful. There are many distractions and road blocks that will work against this doctrine. Our role is to overcome the constraints with inspired solutions and design places that aspire to transform our communities.
Our particular vision pulls inspiration from the local context and regional character; synthesizing design that advances an evolution of a traditional aesthetic heritage through a modern lens.
There is no one style, one solution, one vision to fit every place. There is just good design.
Clients and Projects
Our brand of design works well for a range of clients that need transformative design solutions that benefit the people and communities they serve. Individuals, families, businesses, non-profits, colleges and community institutions constitute our client list.
Project types vary from the intimate needs of an accessible bathroom renovation to the broad complexities of multi-family housing and college dormitories. We look for projects that present opportunities to build transcendent personal value within and connection to the community without.
Our preferred clients understand the value of planning and design and desire unique, custom design solutions that enhance quality of life and knit into the surrounding community.
AND: is committed to delivering architectural services that will deliver the best design for our clients, the users and the community within the contraints of the project. For this reason, no project is exactly the same as another, and so all services are tailored to the Client and the Project. Since all architects provide the same basic types of services, the real difference for any client is the character of conduct that drives those services.
AND: works very hard to establish trust and open communication with our clents, consultants and builder's, as we are not the only one's making decisions. We take a long view approach to each project, pushing through adversity to ensure the successful completion of our projects. Ultimately, if the project is successful, the users are happy, the clients are satisfied and the community is enhanced.
