What we do & why we do it
After twenty years working for large firms across the Country designing large scale commercial projects, I found myself leaning toward the artistry and hands-on experience of owning a small firm focused on the creative aspect of design and construction. I enjoy the process of creating and crafting an environment where my clients grow, laugh, dream, learn and live. My team closely collaborates on each project and this spirit of collaboration extends to our clients, local artisans, craftspeople, subcontractors and others working on the house. We bring everyone together early in the design process and value all input.
Where possible, the landscape becomes our primary collaborator. We visit sites frequently during design to get a feel for the best building location..
All of our projects allow clients to enjoy year-round outdoor living and working environments. We generate private courtyards by framing the yard with the house, garage, and other structures. Our Commercial endeavors engage the same process always searching for a unique and creative response to the need.
Bringing exterior materials indoors—stone, wood and steel—and filling rooms with daylight are just two ways we do this in each project. We also value the art of traditional building methods by mixing them with innovative techniques, applications and technology.
The mission at Craig McMahon Architects is to think holistically about the project from the beginning of design through to the last detail. We improve our clients' quality of life by delivering artfully crafted projects and unique living environments. We are passionate about our work and enjoy developing ideas into livable reality.
