|Melander Architects, Inc. is a full-service architecture firm founded in 1999. We offer a range of services including programming, master planning, feasibility studies, interior and architectural design, and construction documentation and administration. Our work encompasses typically disparate architectural specialties: private custom residential design and public cultural and educational institutions. |
In contrast to our profession's tendency towards specialization, we hold that a practice working with a variety of building types and project scales benefits greatly from the cross-pollination of ideas and techniques. Our residential clients benefit from the efficient project-management techniques we have developed working on large-scale institutional projects, while our institutional clients comment on our attention to detail and personal engagement-qualities often associated with a custom residential practice.
With each project, no matter how large or small, we strive from the outset to understand the particular goals of our client as well as the unique constraints inherent in each project brief. We believe that our most important skill is our ability to listen. We view the design process as a dialogue between client and architect, and approach each project as a collaboration founded on mutual respect and understanding.
