John Alden, AIA, NCARBArchitect + Partner

“What if?” This is possibly John Alden’s favorite question. He asks it of clients, architects, builders, and himself. John looks at every angle, explores every avenue, and pursues every idea before landing on the best solution for the project.

Joel Page, AIAArchitect + Partner

Practical and technically proficient with a balanced and steady manner — Joel approaches projects from a holistic perspective focusing on the client’s needs while keeping an eye on the future impact of the design. “How we live today impacts our planet’s future – design is no different.” Good design should be sustainable, energy efficient and universal.

His primary responsibilities include design and project management.
