New buildings offer an opportunity to create a distinctive place, that can enrich the lives of those who spend time in and around it. As Vitruvius, the Roman architect once said, good architecture must have “firmness, commodity and delight.” We agree.

To reach these goals and inform the design, we listen carefully to our client’s needs and preferences.  We research local zoning regulations and building codes to ensure compliance with regulations.  The building site and surrounding area provide design clues and a context for the project, particularly in existing downtowns and neighborhoods.  LEED certification may be a part of the design process and our architects always follow sustainable practices to the maximum extent possible.
