We help you figure out what you want in and from the building that contains yourself, your family, your business, and your vision. We listen first, and then take your words and thoughts and turn them into three-dimensional objects. We bring light into dark corners. We find space when you thought you had none to spare. We figure out how to keep it warm or cool. And we do it with understanding and respect for your resources. We help you select and communicate with contractors and builders.
You may not know exactly what you want or need, other than a vague idea that something needs to change or be made better. We ask the questions that help bring your needs and ideas out into the open and get them down on paper.
Here is the official version: Great Oak Studio is a full service architectural firm experienced in the design and planning of commercial, institutional, and residential building projects. We listen to your needs and wishes, and then interpret and translate them into designs and documents that construction professionals use to create inspiring, functional spaces. We have particular interest in energy usage, sustainability, and long-term building performance.
