Geoffrey L. Gogan, Architect

"Well crafted, appropriate, budget conscious design"

Who will you be working with?
One of the ways we stand out from other firms is that we realize that if clients could draw their own plans, they would.  Since they need help, it is critical that we "put ourselves in your shoes" and see the project from your perspective. In other words we don't have a certain look that we force on you.  We respond to your needs and preferences and we spend time getting to know you and communicating in different ways to achieve that.   When you call, the same project manager will answer.   While maintaining a professional attitude, we also want you to feel comfortable sitting at your kitchen table.
