Intermediate Designer

At ARG we design for the present as well as preserve the past. We work in a wide variety of sectors and building types including multi-family, hospitality, national and state parks, cultural and performing arts, higher education, and civic projects. We design new buildings in sensitive historic contexts, and work in the adaptive reuse and preservation of older ones. These buildings can be tied to a particular place and time, culture, or significant events and their reuse plays a key role in creating vibrant, sustainable, and contemporary places that contribute greatly to the built environment. In our practice, the past informs the present and sometimes suggests the future.
