As a small architectural firm, you have to be able to take on many different types, sizes, styles of projects. Here is a variety of projects that we have currently in process.

Sentara RMH School of Histotechnology

The Sentara RMH HTL Program is a one year school that includes six months of lecture and student lab followed by a six month rotation through a hospital histology lab. This renovated space for the Lab School allows for more students to go through the program. The space was an open office floor plan. The new renovation will utilize existing offices while adding lab and classroom space into the central office area.

Weiler Orthodontics

Weiler Orthodontics has been providing healthy and beautiful smiles to the Central Shenandoah Valley since 1982. This interior space renovation will bring the facility in line with their passion for excellence. The existing dated interior will be stripped down with some reorganization of interior layout. The new aesthetic will bring a modern, sophisticated look to the facility.

Charlottesville Office

The goal in designing this facility was to provide flexibility and elegance with a modern flair. The two-story office space has an open floor plan. It features outdoor gathering spaces and lots of natural light.

Eastern Mennonite Elementary School

Eastern Mennonite School is looking forward to being a unified campus with grades K – 12 all in one location. This plan has been in the works for years and we are now working on the solution. We are designing a renovation to an existing office building that will be converted into classroom spaces for the K – 5 program. This “new” school will also have an addition that will provide a gathering space and needed office facilities. If you want to financially support the project, click HERE.

Farm Cottage

This small cottage on an existing farm is strategically placed to provide a viewing deck into the horse ring. The primary goal for placement of the cottage was to preserve the existing trees and minimize the structures aesthetic impact. The small footprint cottage will provide a lovely guest area or party central for a day of horses.

InterChange Group Portsmouth

This 200,000 sf facility will grow the abilities of Harrisonburg based InterChange Group into the City of Portsmouth. InterChange has been doing business with the Port of Virginia, and in particular at the Virginia Inland Port Terminal in Front Royal for years. “The Port of Virginia’s cargo volumes are continuing to grow, and InterChange’s decision to develop a warehousing operation in Portsmouth helps to expand the logistics infrastructure the port needs to help sustain its growth,” said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority. The facility will feature 20 drop trailer locations, 28 docks, and meet food-grade specifications.

The Adams at Peppers Ferry

The Adams at Peppers Ferry is just one of the many multi-family projects under construction around the state. This 168 luxury living community in Christiansburg will have all the amenities you can imagine at your fingertips.

Stonegate at the Crossroads

Stonegate at the Crossroads is a luxury living community located in Zion Crossroads. Featuring high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and contemporary open floor plan, these units are modern and sophisticated. The community also features a club house where you can exercise at the exclusive fitness center, relax at the pool, or watch a movie.

Lake Monticello Fire Department

The Lake Monticello Fire Department has outgrown their space. As the community demand has increased and the service calls have gone up, they found the need for a larger facility. Our addition adds bays for equipment as well as a bunk house for their growing volunteer squad. The key to this project was fitting all the program into a very tight space.
