DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our goal at CEO in each project is ‘quality’. This does not mean the level of finishes, quality means creative, resourceful, responsive design. Excellence often means doing more with less; reducing the cost and increasing the richness. Budget does not dictate quality, clear intentions and creative expression creates quality.

We have designed high-quality high-end residences, as well as high-quality low-cost housing. In each case, within the scope of the goals, quality was a key objective.

The owner and builder must appreciate and share a desire for quality. If either of these parties don’t share this desire, then quality is easily lost.

While Architecture has traditionally been "product-oriented," we find ourselves putting equal weight on process. This begins with building the design around the client's program and budget. A team effort, as described above, orchestrates the design process.

CEO’s emphasis on responsive service in our business has to a large measure been a response to the market we serve, which includes experienced home owners, busy people who are able to have any issues managed and promptly resolved.
