Architectural Statement / Awards
Architecture is the result of a patient search for the essence of a project, starting
with the analytical and programming phase, continuing through schematics,
design development, and construction documents, and culminating in the built
form, where the design is fully realized. This process places the designer in the
position of constantly evaluating architectural ideas and concepts as these are
weighed against the requirements of the client, until an equilibrium is attained.
For this search, C. R. Francis / Architecture relies on the skills of the generalist -
widely educated in the profession and experienced in a variety of project types
while being attentive to detail - working in concert with our clients.
