Vision We profess a simple but profound belief: if our architecture is thoughtful and durable, its sustainability will be evident. For if our work is purposeful, users will be engaged. And if our work is of high quality, its longevity will be assured. In support of this ideal, the staff of Serena Sturm Architects is committed to a set of goals: - Achieving total client satisfaction through careful listening, collaboration and sensitive design - Producing projects that exude excellence in design, craftsmanship and management - Contributing to society by serving clients who uphold high moral, social and environmental values - Maintaining a team-oriented practice that is recognized for professionalism, quality and creativity - Supporting the professional goals of all staff members through appropriate leadership, research and training Services Provided Our firm offers a full range of professional design services, including feasibility studies, master planning, space planning, integrated architectural design and interior design. In addition, we work closely with a highly trusted team of consultants to provide specific services such as landscape design, structural, mechanical, electrical, acoustical and civil engineering. Through these partnerships, we are able to provide concept-to-completion services for all our clients and all our projects. Project Management We pride ourselves on a highly collaborative and team-oriented project management approach. We evaluate the project within the context of its own unique time, financial, quality and design parameters, and bring together the specific talent, experience and expertise required. This approach ensures the project staff remains consistent throughout the project's course and guarantees a Principal's involvement on each project. At the center of our management approach are the client’s goals and objectives. We desire, even expect, our client to be an integral part of the design team throughout the project. We believe strong management is the best insurance for producing high quality designs that meet the client’s functional, budgetary and aesthetic requirements. Our goal, therefore, is to create a strong bond between client/architect, inspiring the confidence and trust essential to successful project completion. We have found success in this relationship—our clients are strangers only once, and friends for a lifetime.
