About Ritter Norton Architects
Our award-wining team of architects and designers is dedicated to providing user-friendly, thoughtful, innovative, budget-conscious, and environmentally sensitive design solutions to meet each clients’ unique needs and aspirations. Our designs are not stereotypical or based on any particular style. Through close and sustained collaboration with our customers and our entire design team, each new innovative concept is born out of the particulars of a given project. Contextual circumstances, programmatic needs, budget constraints, community impact, and sustainable strategies are carefully balanced in pursuit of imaginative, humane, and poetic design solutions.
Listening, collaborating, and consensus building are at the core of our design process.
Knowledge and understanding are the foundational elements every successful project is built upon. Our projects are not about us, they are about the needs, goals, and aspirations our clients and the communities for whom we design. Nothing is more important to achieving that knowledge base than listening carefully to our clients and in the process uncovering important factors and meaning often not initially verbalized. From the outset ...we aim to establish both practical and qualitative goals as well as a broader shared purpose for the project.
We believe that the best ideas and solutions come from tapping the knowledge, insight, and creativity of our talented design team and our clients. We work collaboratively both within the office and with our clients and foster clear, open, and honest communication from the earliest stages of concept design through the final details of construction. Working together we explore possibilities and build consensus every step of the way to help ensure project goals are not only met but exceeded.
