The Company was organized in 1979 through the formation of a new architectural firm by principals previously in their own practice.  

Each project team is led by a principal or officer serving as the team’s manager.  In this way, our clients always have access to the total resources of the firm and the firm’s consultants through a senior member of the firm, responsive to the planning, programming, scheduling, aesthetic and economic objectives of the client.

Through diversity we offer greater experience and imagination when finding solutions to the project needs of our clients.  The range of our experience extends through a variety of building and use types and includes new construction, tenant improvements as well as exterior renovations.
