Commercial Interiors

Brokers, you know your buildings, the lease terms and available space you have to work with.


 You probably have discussed a general layout and proposed a lease area for approval. You may now need “test-fits” to show your client how it will work. You know your TI budget and need to know costs, including fees and time.  You need a fast turnaround to get the deal done. You're finding that getting tenants in at the lowest cost in the soonest possible time works some of the time. 

We can help you with all of that. 


Some tenants want to fit more things into less space.  We're used to that. Municipalities have increased rules for permit drawings. We get that.  Most of the rules make sense to us anyway.

Delivering simple solutions; creative designs that maximize space, get permitted and built...that is what we do.  Documents are easily understandable, comprehensive and straightforward.  You get fewer headaches, more predictability and happier tenants.

“... you are way better than other architects/Interior designers we worked with. You really understand the whole process, you get the details right and your projects get done. I don’t have to worry :) Tenants are happy!”— Brian Haase

High-end Residential Design and Universal Design

Want to get your dream project underway as smoothly as possible?


You deserve to be in control of the process having as clear a picture as possible of where to start and where to begin.  Are you looking for a new home, or have one and feel it needs a general overhaul repairs, replacement and minor renovations. Sometimes is difficult to be assured that the colors will complement each other or that the overall vision will be the right one. 


Your goal is to find the right path for your project, for your budget and for you.  We all know that an architect does not design most homes.  A draftsman or your builder, who may lean toward plans, construction methods and product suppliers with which they have had success, may do them. For many, this is just fine.  It may also impose limitations and narrow the field of possibilities for your project.  Some seek solutions using stock floor plans on the web, like ePlans and FamilyHome Plans, all by definition not customized.

A well-trained architect designs to the individual, taking particular needs and specific locations into account. We concern ourselves with desired aesthetic issues, manipulating proportions, alignments, masses, voids and materials to create pleasing results.  

With an open mind approach to the project, creative solutions are produced.  As a result, the magic of Architecture occurs in your home.  If this sounds like what you are looking for, give us a call and let's get together.  If you so chose, we can work closely with your builder or construction manager who will then build your dream home.

Meanwhile, take a look at some websites that have good information.  You may want to check them out:

UNIVERSAL DESIGN, a.k.a. Architecture for Flexible Living

Universal Design (UD) is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design (NAHB).  It incorporates ease of use, low maintenance, accessibility, flexibility, and low operational costs in to all facilities, most especially your home.  With these goals in mind, the design of spaces, buildings or homes does not need to look or feel different.  It is amazing what can be incorporated with an eye for the future.

Can you imagine homes, incorporating Age-In-Place & UD concepts for all family members at all stages of life, which are more comfortable, safer and easier-to-use?  Well, we can. We are Certified Age-in-Place Specialists (CAPS). Our research has taken us around the world to distill Age-In-Place and Universal Design concepts into a working checklist / resource for evaluations and for design.  With the CAPS evaluation we can talk to you about real choices in the design of your home, including UD concepts. 

Disaster Recovery events, such as recent hurricane losses however, forces the rebuilding or replacement of homes now.  Some homes will be refurbished, others will be rebuilt.  This presents a widespread scale of opportunities to incorporate Age-In-Place & UD concepts into these new plans.  We are actively looking to team up with the Disaster Recovery Efforts and help to contribute such deliberate answers.  It will be worthwhile for the long-term. 


"By your moving back to Texas, Virginia lost a fine Architect.  You Texans seem to stick together. We enjoyed your work on our Deltaville home.  We wish you good success."  - Brent Halsey

Do You Need a Genuine Professional?

Collaboration with other Firms.

Do you feel you can attract new customers and business by bolstering your Firm’s qualifications?  You know your Company’s abilities and your Clients’ needs.  You could take the time to acquire the skill in-house, but still not at the same as bringing in an architect with true expertise as a Consultant. 

Have you been drawn into a market (or want to enter a new market)?  Has your client asked you to bring on a Consultant and you are reluctant you will lose some control?  You won’t with us.  You'll find we are comfortable to work with at a price you can afford. 

Some firms are open to new ideas and realize how our seasoned experience can help answer their questions and suggest well-informed improvements.  Getting you reliable information and direction in the soonest possible time is our goal.  

If we have the expertise you need – projects, business insight, practice, and transitions – we’ll tell you.  If we don’t, we will suggest someone who does. We want to be your go-to professional for the advice you need and provide consulting where we can.

Simple consulting is answering your questions and offering our expert advice.  Many clients know what they need.  We provide what they need and can afford to do.
