Architect Led Design + Build
As licensed architects with over 20 years of experience as builders, Design Draw Build is a distinct model of vertically integrated, design-oriented, design/build practice. We believe that excellent design is driven by ‘how’ it will be applied in the physical world. Each member of our leadership team is an experienced carpenter, stonemason, or builder and has at least one architecture degree.
We understand every step of the process from the design through the build because we concentrate on inventive process, and often do each piece, every day. There is an economy to this practice – rather than subcontract work to many additional entities with self-interest and different goals, we direct most aspects of our projects in-house, passing huge amounts of communication and admin time savings on to our clients.
