Working with Kurt Krueger Architects, Inc.
While every project is different, we approach it with the same passion, energy and design rigor to celebrate the aspirations of our clients. We are contemporary – modern – architects meaning that, our designs maximize the potential for light and space, buildings that are comfortably proportioned in scale and blur the boundaries between ‘inside and out.’ We do not define contemporary design by a particular style, but rather an architecture that is of its present time and place.
We are ‘green architects’ in the sense that we believe that green design does not have to be boring and strive to create beautiful buildings that harmonize with the site’s natural features and have minimal impact on the environment. Sustainability does not require complicated technology and expensive materials. While we often encourage active systems such as solar panels, the most sustainable decision we can make can be as simple as the orientation of a building on the site: how it faces the sun for natural daylight, opens to breezes for natural ventilation, and shelters us from harsher elements. These were ancient techniques used by our ancestors out of necessity. It was common sense then, and it still is today.
We understand that the historic architecture of your home is priceless. Whether it is a historic renovation or historic restoration, we work closely with you to preserve and protect the historic details that give your home its unique value. We will research your home’s history by utilizing historic drawings and records, photographs and even found materials during construction to renovate your historic home while maintaining its character and charm. In addition, we help you seamlessly navigate through any entitlement process and historic renovation requirements of your local or state authority.
There has long been a disconnection between the design and construction of buildings. Because of this, we are able to provide Construction Management services for some of our projects. Members of our team collaborate with the builders and fabricators to ensure a high level of quality throughout construction. Rather than handing off the drawings and hope they are executed to our standards, the architect is an integral part of the construction process. Your vision is carried through the project from beginning to end.
- We communicate well, give peace of mind and are easy to work with
- Our modern, energy-savings designs are tailored to each client’s current and future needs, lifestyle, aspirations, budget and site
- Our regular Cost Reports help clients manage their building budgets and make well informed decisions
- A Senior Architect is involved at every stage of every project to ensure that the design doesn’t get ‘diluted’ during construction
We hope the above gives you the confidence to consider contacting us about your project. We will happily discuss your requirements with you and, if we feel we can help, will arrange to come and see you. If however we feel that we are not best placed to meet your brief we will recommend someone who is.
