solid orange architecture

As a small firm, we are able to offer a personal connection to your project while providing the services you need. Our services range from early project design, all the way through to completion of construction. We recognize that every client and project is unique, and a core principle of Solid Orange Architecture is to focus on our clients’ needs. Building on a strong foundation through client relations, we create each project based on understanding, thoroughness, quality, creativity and sustainability.

We are:

 

architecture that listens

Each project and client comes from a unique starting point. We feel that one of the most important aspects of architecture is listening to our clients. This doesn't just happen at the beginning of a project, but continuously throughout the project and beyond. We strive to develop a level of trust with our clients that results in a long term client relationship. 

Design that is clear

We want to make sure that you know and love your design before your project is even built. 2D drawings or sketches and 3D renderings can’t tell the full story of a design. That is why we are excited to utilize design software that gives us the ability to virtually build your project. This allows you to see your design in 3D at all stages of design. In addition to this, we are proud to be one of the first firms to offer the use of virtual reality (VR) technology that allows our clients to become fully immersed in their design. Now you can walk through your design as if you were actually there, long before construction even begins.

Architecture that's YOURS

Architecture can fall into the background of our lives, or it can stand out and make a statement. We want to make sure your project is recognizable. Your project is unique, and your building’s design should be too.  Each project is viewed with a fresh perspective. We look to bring elements of design to each project that complement our client’s needs.

architecture that matters

According to the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Energy Information Agency, buildings account for approximately 40% of the energy consumed by the U.S., and construction can account for approximately 30% of the waste stream to our landfills.  Not taking this lightly, we look for ways to help cut energy use of buildings, reduce product and material waste, and using products with a sustainable track record.  With the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) we are able to look at modeling natural light and energy efficiencies through various designs.  This gives us the tools to make educated decisions about what is best for your building, with sustainability in mind.
