Architecture matters. More than shelter and usefulness, it is a deeply imbedded part of the human experience. At SMMA, the art of designing and building is at the very core of our firm's identity. Our designers are talented, experienced, and insatiably curious. The process begins with an exploration of the client's needs and expectations, all the while informed by the imperatives of budget and schedule. The greatest compliment paid to our work is when we hear, " You've expressed our deepest aspirations." The best designs are those that harness the intuition and form-making of the architect with the most appropriate built solution for a particular client, place, and time. Our designs meet practical demands while achieving the classical tripartite goals of "utility, firmness, and beauty."
