Architects West’s commitment to the principles of stewardship, community, and pursuit of excellence have formed our foundation of over four decades of professional service.
Stewardship encompasses all facets of resource conservation. This principle informs everything we do, from helping our clients select the appropriate site, to making sound choices concerning materials, and methods, to being efficient in the use of our client’s time and resources. Environmental and contextual sensitivity is an exercise in stewardship and an integral aspect of the practice of architecture and land planning. Well-conceived sites, structures, and systems provide lasting value and enhanced quality of life for users while minimizing our impact on the environment, leaving a positive legacy for future generations.
Architecture is about place-making within our communities: creating responsive spaces for our clients in which they and our communities can flourish and be successful. This occurs not just in terms of how individuals respond to their surroundings, but also how a built environment affects the way we interact with one another. Architects West enhances the best aspects of community life and bringing people together.
The practice of architecture is dynamic. New technologies, approaches, materials and methods are constantly emerging, that challenge our thinking and experience. The creative process necessarily evolves as ideas are embraced or discarded, and the multitude of options are explored. Excellence is a life endeavor, built upon applying lessons learned of experience, shared insight, and active pursuit of improvement. We invest our time and resources into the continual quest for excellence in service delivery, improving processes, and learning from the lessons of the past so that our client’s projects are successful.
