In a word, our approach is collaborative. For more than 19 years, we have honed a set of practices to best meet the unique needs of each client and make the design process as smooth as possible. We firmly believe that active listening is key to the success of a project and the delight of the client. We take immense pride in our work and consider it an honor to design structures that bring enduring satisfaction to their inhabitants.

EXPERIENCED

Our principal is involved in every project. You benefit from his 27+ years of experience.

EFFICIENT

Your money is not wasted on unnecessary stuff. We carefully track where we are in your design budget, and you are updated on status at the start of every meeting.

FLEXIBLE

We are flexible in the services we provide. We can tackle your entire project or just the portions you need.

Integrative

If you are interested in a design/build process, we will work with a builder from the very beginning. We bring in sub-consultants as necessary, from acoustical experts to geotechnical engineers.

RESPONSIVE

We are designing for you. Your preferences govern, not ours. We respond promptly to phone calls and email. We take your timeline seriously. We start when we promised and we meet our deadlines. Each project has a dedicated lead who is both project manager and lead designer. You have one point of contact.

THOROUGH

Our drawings are thorough and coordinated. We do the interior design as well as the architecture so you get a coherent aesthetic result. We like to figure everything out before construction begins. We rarely have difficulty with permitting so your builder will not be waiting to get underway.

VELOCIPEDE was very attentive of our ideas and wishes for the design—including eco-friendly products and space/usage issues. Architect had fabulous ideas for detail work and all in all was terrific. Great interaction, very happy overall.
