We provide a full range of service from concept design through construction administration to be sure that our client's get what they want and get what they pay for.
Since every client is different, it means that each project will be different as we work together to make the client's dreams come true.

Fees are designed to be appropriate to the client's limits and desires. Standard options include: lump sum (limited scope); time-and-materials (unlimited scope); percentage-of-construction.
The combination of an appreciation of design, an interest in practical solutions to functional problems and construction challenges, and a desire to make a positive difference in the world led to a logical choice to pursue architecture as a career and business.

The client is wholly responsible for defining: functional needs, budget, and descerning value when decisions are required.
