Architecture


Architecture
ARCHITECTURE IS THE ART OF COMPOSING SPACES THAT RESPOND TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND ADDRESS A CLIENT'S NEEDS.  WE STRIVE TO CREATE PLACES THAT ENRICH HOW PEOPLE LIVE, WORK AND PLAY.
We are not vendors of fashionable trends, but believe that good design defines our environment because truly innovative design is a source of inspiration to those who encounter it every day. We understand the impact our architecture can have on a community ... or a business ... or a person's life. Our work is more than just a project. It's the opportunity to make something better ... a better school, a better industrial process, a better shopping experience, a better healthcare facility.
 At Farnsworth Group, we thoughtfully consider all the functional building needs and wants of our clients. We carefully work within the confines of their project budgets and schedules. And we create with them noble expressions of architecture that are a source of timeless pride and satisfaction for all who experience them.
  • Master planning, visioning and placemaking
  • Architectural design and project administration
  • Site planning, entitlements and landscape architecture
  • Existing facility analysis
  • Sustainable design and building envelope analysis

Interior Design
WE OBSERVE, LISTEN, QUESTION AND GATHER.We define a process, research options, brainstorm ideas, and create solutions to design an environment that reflects your vision, style, and brand.By creating a space that is flexible, durable, and timeless, we can help you respond to future growth and changing needs. Our interior designers create spaces that will support and nurture your workflow as well as enhance your surroundings. The end result will be a functional and aesthetically pleasing place to work, play, worship, heal, and learn.

Landscape Architecture
FROM OUR DRAWING BOARDS TODAY, WE ARE CREATING THOSE SPECIAL OUTDOOR SPACES OF TOMORROW.
Our practice includes the planning, development, and the long-term maintenance of the built and natural environment.
As Landscape Architects, our mission is to lead, educate, and participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. Our practice follows a very simple philosophy: Form Follow Function. The beauty of a site comes not only from the materials selected and placed, but it must also accomplish the functional goals outlined by the client's needs. Through the wise planning of space, integrating land forms to create views, an understanding of use building materials, and incorporating the needs of the landscape help our clients to 'create a sense of place.'

HOW WE WORK
We Deliver
WE LISTEN, UNDERSTAND, AND ADAPT TO DELIVER THE ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURE PROJECTS OUR CLIENTS NEED.
At Farnsworth Group, our process is based in understanding — understanding of design and engineering, of who our clients are, and of how they do business. We listen hard, reading between the lines to identify the needs our clients articulate, and those that lie beneath the surface.
Communication is vital to a project’s success, and we are committed to responsiveness and transparency every day, from day one forward. The team our clients meet at the outset of a project is the same team that is present and available on a day-to-day basis — including our firm’s principals. Our team genuinely cares about the people they work with, and that helps us build relationships that thrive from one project to the next.
We never ask clients to adapt to our methodology. Instead, we get to know the way client teams work and adjust our own processes to maximize collaboration and understanding throughout the life of a project. Our process isn’t about over-designing or creating projects to fuel our own egos; it’s about identifying our clients’ unique needs and delivering real value.

Safety is Our First Priority
