ABout Us

Opening our doors in January 2000, we began with a mission to create meaningful architecture that responds to its local environment. Our approach has always been to include the client as part of the design team, believing that this approach develops equity in the success of each project, and allows us to reach the best design solution.

Over the past two decades, this mission and philosophy remain our guiding principles. We have evolved to become a comprehensive architectural, planning and design firm with project successes spanning from coast to coast in the continental United States. Our specialties include Religious Places of Worship, Historic Renovation, Cultural Centers, Museum Design and Planning, Healthcare, Commercial / Retail, Offices, Restaurants, Education, and Civic / Government facilities. 

In October of 2010, our firm acquired a historic building in downtown Edmond, Oklahoma, and completed a full rehabilitation / renovation before relocating our team. Our headquarters is equipped with a large conference room for client and contractor meetings, an open studio work space for our design professionals, and a curated finish library for Interior Design services.

Our staff possess the qualifications, expertise, and experience necessary to provide complete design team management and architectural services for oversight of a project from inception to completion. We devote equal attention to projects small and large, and have built our reputation on meeting our client’s schedule and budget requirements.

We work closely with our clients to create design solutions that best serve the project needs. We understand the importance of relationships and remain committed to providing the highest level of service in pursuit of accomplishing common goals.
