PAF Architecture, LLC
Personal Service - Memorable Spaces

PAF Architecture was established in 2003.  We are a small team of dedicated professionals with over 25 years of combined experience in residential design.  Our practice is focused on pursuing and maintaining the integrity of ideas, rather than a preference for a particular style.

Whether traditional or contemporary- new, or a remodeling project - our work is distinguished by the creation of a unique and compelling character for the home.  We aim for historically accurate detailing, cutting-edge innovative contemporary design, or honoring the originality of an existing home.  We are inspired by the unlimited variety of highly personal and beautiful spaces that can be achieved through careful and thoughtful home design. 

We create homes that are each as wonderfully unique as our clients.

As a client of PAF Architecture, our design process is focused on your goals, your needs, your style, your budget, and is implemented at your convenience.

By collaborating with our clients, we discover and create together their own unique vision of home.

Personal Service:
Our architectural design services unfold in a step-by-step fashion:

Step 1.  Free Initial Consultation
We meet with you at your home and at your convenience to learn about your goals for the project, and its anticipated time-frame.

Step 2.  Service Proposal
Based on the needs expressed at our meeting, we draft a proposal outlining a detailed project-specific process for acheiving your goals.  The outlined services include estimates of our time required to perform various tasks.  The proposal concludes with an estimated total of hourly services and billing rates.

Steps 1 and 2 are free, and with no obligation!

Step 3.  Design Service and Construction
Every project unfolds through a collaborative effort of sharing thoughts and ideas during a series of meetings. Early meetings will focus on identifying and addressing overarching project goals. Later meetings will be key to fine-tuning the project, and very often, your builder will be present so that the project moves efficiently from concept to practicability. Between each meeting, the project moves forward by a series of drawing efforts aimed at refining ideas and clarifying information. The drawing and review process will result in a very detailed set of drawings from which building permits may be obtained, and the project can be built.
