WORKING WITH US
The foundation of our work is rooted in the understanding that Architecture is about people. Our clients drive our process. RPA aggressively pursues the partnerships necessary to create buildings that bring joy to their inhabitants.
We strive for simplicity and clarity in our work. Our innovative and elegant design solutions are without stylistic preconceptions and are as unique and diverse as our clients.
We understand designing and constructing successful buildings is a collective effort. RPA brings our clients together with select consultants and partners to create a collaborative design process. Active dialogue from beginning discussions through final construction ensures an outstanding outcome.
People and Place
Our objective is carefully connecting people’s lives with their place. Most of our projects begin by walking the site with our clients. This is an essential first step in creating fundamental connections between the project brief and the site. By identifying site conditions such as solar orientation, views, and landscape characteristics we are able to discover the “essential nature” of the place. The building form grows from these underlying qualities and ensures that each project achieves a unique unity of climate and form.
RPA is committed to being at the forefront of sustainable building practices. By incorporating building energy performance standards, we develop timeless architecture that offers unparalleled comfort, while being cost effective, light on resource consumption, and beneficial to the environment. We specialize in Passive House design, engineering, and construction. Passive House offers today’s most advanced technological approach to creating responsible, comfortable, and healthy buildings.
