The Practice: About our firm

Entering our thirty-first year of private practice, we continue to deliver and expand our award-winning design excellence over the gamut of architectural services: programming, planning, pre-design, schematic, and interior design, construction documentation, jurisdictional approvals and construction management.

Techniques, Specialties & Examples

We employ high-performance-outcome techniques including risk management, value engineering, project cost analysis in: 1) end user and client interaction, 2) consultative team building, and 3) development of collaborative working environments.

Our built projects are best catagorized into four areas of sub-specialization:

• medical
• religious
• commercial
• residential

Our repertoire of specialized building types requires application of the best-suited aesthetic and functional expressions. We derive appropriate responses from: market-driven reforms in health care and technological innovation; symbolism and liturgical interpretations, respect of cultural context in renovation; and sensitivities of residential lifestyles' emotional aspects.

If you provide two of the three project variables (completion time, budget cost, material quality) we will quantify and determine the nature of the third variable.

An integrated approach
Problem seeking for greater problem solving

Our firm's architecture philosophy holds that we apply the design process from the building interior to the exterior to the neighborhood and community beyond as an inseparable stream of overlapping and interdependent sustainabilities to be evaluated and solved.

Architecture cannot be sliced and diced according to internecine ego conflicts of the moment. Building form reaches deeper into the psychic with eternal significance and demands a higher rigor than what a committee of competing designers would yield.

Public health, safety, welfare and energy concerns are woven together to produce a result with a timeless sense of place and belonging.

We bring a well seasoned expertise in barrier-free design composed of seeking solutions which bridge age, range and extent of disability; knowledge of local, state and national building codes and standards with understanding of materials and their properties which include energy requirements, chemical compatibility, slip resistance, toxicity, flammability, allergic risk. When greater study of lighting, color, acoustics, indoor air quality, ergonomics, energy innovation and conservation is required, the respective specialists are added to our collaborative team.
