Stephen Dorsey A.I.A Architect




Effective architecture creates a building process that delivers the building best suited for the client’s needs and desires. As a sole practitioner I personally attend to and complete all architectural services. You receive the full benefit of my skills and experience. Orchestrating consulting engineers, building departments, and contractors, I am the one person with the big picture that keeps everyone working together to effectively achieve your goals. I work to balance function, quality, cost, and artistic beauty.  Attention is given to emotion and image created by design.  Whether a project is simple or complex, services are tailored to client needs. I believe the architect has the single most potential for adding value to your project.
