Like a handprint in fresh concrete, our work makes an impression in the world.  We strive to make a valuable impact on our communities, clients, and partners.  Our experience is diverse, award winning, focused on both design and technical excellence.

 

 

 

Handprint architecture is a small, collaborative architecture practice led by three experienced professionals that believe in the power of relationship.  With nearly 60 years of combined experience, we maximize value for our clients.  We understand and respect our communities.  Our work is made better by an honest and open collaboration with our partners.

 

 

 

The work is hard and we take our commitment to our clients sincere.  We are fun-loving people and appreciate all the beauty, humor, and love that life brings.
