We have a passion for projects of all sizes
We’ve contributed to solving Client design challenges for more than 20 years. Believing that design is a conversation between Client & Architect, DPA explores and creates solutions that are collaborative with the Client and specific to the Client. We offer Contemporary Modern design solutions with no project being too small or too complex.
DPA creates architecture balanced with its natural environment. Along with being aesthetically appropriate to the site, neighborhood or community, our goal is to complete projects that are energy conscious, add value and inspire a greater sense of who the Client is.
Knowing that well designed architecture is an investment, we provide a multi-layered process including quality control. Our goals include: Quality functional design, interesting aesthetic design, quality construction, added value realized and our clients’ satisfaction.
We know that every successful project begins with the right questions and a conversation.

Focused on adding value for our clients
Our process and drawings are developed with layered quality control so that, we reduce change orders, reduce litigation and make our clients happy. This process of clarity is worth 10-100 times it’s up front cost and is best considered an investment in the overall value of the project.
We provide clients functional aesthetically pleasing and cost effective projects.
We save clients money through the use of sustainable materials, design, and technology.
We know the ins and outs of the design, construction and permitting process. It’s our job to know the details, again saving clients time and money.
What we are not …
Very small project Architects…Although we are capable of small projects such as Kitchen and Bath remodels, we may not be the most cost effective solution for you. We focus on projects being build from the ground up or full renovations.
Interior Decorators…Selecting finishes and fixtures is part of the services we provide in the design process of new construction and full renovations. If looking for help selecting fabrics or furniture, we can assist you in locating a talented interior decorator or designer with more expertise for these services.
