CULTURAL



Founded in 1980, Booth Hansen is a nationally-recognized architecture, planning, and interiors firm. As a medium sized firm, we provide project and design leadership with experienced principal architects who are engaged and attentive to the needs of every project no matter the size. Through commercial, cultural and educational projects, as well as multi-family and single-family residences, our contribution to the built environment aims to capture the unique quality of each project. We address the functional needs of our clients while seeking a direct connection with the human spirit through architecture’s timeless, poetic language. We believe in the power of collaboration among designers, clients, stakeholders, and consultants to produce successful results and products of enduring quality. Clarity in communication leads to an equally defined design process, in which many voices come together in a single vision. As architects, we are agents of that vision, carefully evolving it from concept to construction. With every project, Booth Hansen looks to create beautiful places that people treasure.

It features a public event space, housing for a variety of animals, and facilities for the caretakers.
