A client's design experience should be easy and enjoyable. Everyone has an architectural story that captures a moment in time, a convergence of ideas, needs, place and collaboration. Understanding client goals (functional, financial, aesthetic) is paramount to achieving a successful project. Creativity is key, but that's the easy part! Executing quality design & engineering and communicating in a timely fashion help ensure a positive process for projects.
It is simply, the best. From our freshwater lakes, to our green rolling topography, those of us that choose to live and work here are very fortunate souls! Though our weather is sometimes fickle, we enjoy many beautiful summer days in our around our fresh water and brisk winter days playing in the snow. It is a lovely place to visit and an even better place to live.
