ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

DESIGN FOR LIVING

Cory Spencer Partners specializes in designing, renovating, and restoring residential buildings. Combining innovative technologies with a thorough knowledge of historical design and construction practices, we work to create timeless and beautiful houses that meet the needs of modern family life.

 

A unified approach to architecture, interiors, and garden spaces is one of the things that makes our firm unique.  Historically, architects designed gardens in concert with buildings so that the two could co-exist in harmony.  While we don’t always have the luxury of designing a house and garden from the ground up, using a thorough and sensitive evaluation of existing conditions, and with the application of rigorous design principles, we can still achieve this kind of harmony — no matter the scale of the project.

 

Cory Spencer Partners has two licensed architects on staff and a full time landscape and interior design team.  We pay special attention to the context of every commission, looking at both vernacular architecture and the surrounding landscape to determine the appropriate design direction. We evaluate a family’s fundamental needs — how they enjoy living, working, relaxing and entertaining — to produce a project that is personal, practical, polished, and beautiful.

COMMERCIAL DESIGN SOLUTIONS

 

Commercial spaces present a unique set of challenges — form must follow function without sacrificing style, comfort, and a unique sense of place. Every aspect of functionality, such as the need for signage or legal compliance is critical to the final design program. We like to develop work spaces that are warm and inviting as well as practical — ᅠalways striving to bring a strong element of our residential aesthetic to every commercial application.
