Architecture & Planning:
Sustaining, Preserving and Revitalizing Buildings and Communities
A community grows through time, ultimately creating a unique sense of place that offers an architectural environment rich in character, details and materials. Continual change is an essential part of that process. As a partner committed to the preservation and enhancement of that evolving architecture legacy, Frazier Associates helps communities build on their strengths and develop a new vision for their future. Our mission is to strengthen Virginia’s historic communities through design.
Frazier Associates is a full-service architecture and planning firm located in Staunton, Virginia, assisting communities and individuals across the Commonwealth and the country. As historic architects we specialize in architectural design including adaptive reuse of historic homes and buildings, new construction and urban infill, downtown revitalization, historic preservation, and residential architecture. Our experience in community planning complements this work. Whether it is a set of design guidelines, a home improvement guide, a historic designation, a corridor enhancement plan, a Main Street facade program, or a community wayfinding system, Frazier Associates provides a contextual approach to architecture and planning projects that responds to community character and enhances the final product.
Whatever your community may be – your home, your neighborhood, or your downtown- we know its importance in your life. We focus on client needs and goals, offer personal service, emphasize communication throughout the process, seek and respond to client input, and provide creative solutions to architecture and planning issues. The relationships we build with our clients and the integrity of design are our top priorities. Our goal is to provide added value to all projects.
We are honored to have a large repeat client base in both the public and private sector, which serves as a testament to the quality of our design work and the level of our architecture services. Since its inception in 1986, Frazier Associates has designed more than 3,000 projects located throughout the mid-Atlantic area and has been recognized with more than 90 awards in architecture, planning, and historic preservation.
Over the years, Frazier Associates has recruited an experienced team of architects, planners, historians, interior designers, and graphic designers who share the founding principals’ commitment to help knit communities together through architectural design. In addition, the firm often works with a variety of engineers, landscape architects, and other specialized consultants as needed in order to best tailor teams for specific projects.
Staff members are professionally registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), and the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD); and we are certified by the National Park Service to work on historic projects.
