Walking through a home designed by smitharc is not about moving between rooms. It’s about experiencing spaces. Architecture has a responsibility to do more than function. It invites and rewards exploration…it makes you feel something.
Our process starts by listening to our clients describe how they aspire to live. They trust us to translate their thoughts into elevated, artful designs that are tailored to their unique and layered lives. Every smitharc project is led by a Principal who guides our team of highly skilled associates. Collaboration and communication with our Clients and Design + Construction partners is essential to execute bold ideas with creativity, vigor and consistency.
While every smitharc home is a bespoke design, some common themes arise. A smitharc structure leverages nature to harmonize indoor and outdoor spaces. It exhibits the refined talents of highly skilled craftspeople. It sets the stage with lasting detailing and cinematic places- craving to be experienced.
Established in 2006, smitharc is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC.)
