We collaborate with our clients, consultants and colleagues.


We advocate for the public, our clients, and the profession of Architecture.


We research in support of design. We believe that the best designs are discovered.


We educate our clients, the community, our profession, …and ourselves.


We make sustainability an integral a part of our practice.


Our 'other' work (commercial, civic) is currently focused on urban “interventions” or “real urbanism”.

We are very interested in working with building owners located in downtown business areas including restaurants, retail establishments, health clinics and more.

About What We Do...

We often are asked "What does it cost to make blueprints?" Our answer is that we don't make blueprints.  If you are in need of our consulting services, we can assist you hourly as you develop your overall concept and plan of action. We can help you to develop a vision for your project. Architects provide service. We provide advice. The paper on which we describe our ideas, service and advice are referred to as our "instruments of service". But we are not selling paper, or ink, or "blueprints".  We provide Ideas. Just as the Doctor isn't selling you a scalpel or the lawyer isn't selling you the paper on which a contract is written, we sell Ideas and Designs - we don't provide products.
