A potential client was interviewing me and asked, “Tell me what your design would look like if this was your house.” I turned to him and said, “I’ll answer your question, but my answer won't reveal what your home will be. This house won’t be designed for me. It will be designed for you. Our situations, needs and desires are decidedly different. A design arising from my circumstances will be vastly different from one that successfully addresses yours.”
That exchange summarizes Gorman Architects’ approach to design. We are a client centered firm. We put design to work to provide buildings that are relevant to you. We evaluate a design’s success based on your criteria, not ours. If you consider a project successful, then we have reached our goal. Our job is to translate your criteria into a structure that is well conceived, well crafted and enduringly appealing.
I got that job. I think you will value what we offer too. It really is all about you.
