We create residential environments that encourage the human spirit to grow and ďŹ‚ourishâ€”improving the quality of life of each resident. Our architectural expertise ranges from community master planning, new construction, renovations, sustainable design, and all other aspects of the built environment. This commitment spans a range of project types from residential multi-family buildings, property upgrades and repositioning, and community amenities. A home is more than bricks and mortar. It is the essence of the individual resident interacting with friends, enjoying life in a safe and familiar community environment.
Some examples of diﬀerent amenities include rooftop pools, outdoor grills, exercise facilities, and community rooms—attracting new residents while making use of underutilized space. Upgrading a property’s amenity package can inﬂuence which residential market the property competes in, and the type of renter it attracts.

Totaling more than 115 units, the complex comprises ﬂats and two-story, loft-style units, some with access to dedicated roof decks. All units have direct access elevators. The structural system employed allows each unit to have windows on front and rear faces. The result is a stunning blend of indoor and outdoor space in the heart of Arlington—steps from the thriving commercial core and the area’s public transportation system.

BRIGHTVIEW GREAT FALLS For Brightview at Great Falls, special care was taken to create a design harmonious with the surrounding historic vernacular of Great Falls and natural topography of the site. The 72,000 sf building is set back from the property line and the ﬁnished ﬂoor elevation is six feet below the road allowing for a softer streetscape. The building’s exterior is comprised of moss green siding, natural stone, white trim and simple gables and hip roof forms in keeping with the character of the neighborhood. The building’s mass was broken up with several one story wings to give a human scale and understated appearance to the façade. Stone chimneys and other elements such as covered porches were designed to give the building the feeling of a single family residence.
