Enclosures Architects is a service organization dedicated to innovative design, 100% client satisfaction and a determination to closely oversee the progress of each project from conception through successful completion.
Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Enclosures Architects is an event that elicits considerable pride for both Tash and myself. As students studying together at SCIARC many years ago, it seems inconceivable that together we established an architectural practice whose success is now part of a 20 year legacy.
That legacy includes the many wonderful clients, associates and supporting professionals we have come to know. These relationships mean a great deal to us. We look forward to sharing a promising future with every one of you.
If there is one shared trait that helps explain our success it would have to be determination.
We are determined to continue listening very carefully which is the key to understanding and realizing our client’s needs and desires.
We are determined to continue considering all possibilities with each and every decision we make.
We are determined to continue making you more satisfied than you ever thought possible.
We are determined to continue ensuring that our experiment is also your discovery.
We are determined to continue sharing our pride in undertaking this privileged journey.
Successful Architecture is much more than erecting an intriguing building. It is the process of creating a place capable of impacting your most fundamental feelings and thoughts. When this place allows you to thrive and flourish, a spirit emerges that can triumph over every challenge and realize all of life’s many possibilities. If we have had any small part in this achievement, we have done our job.
