Confluence Architecture
5 Reviews
Confluence Architecture is small, multi-discipline firm. We specialize in using the latest techniques to optimize the efficiency, comfort and durability of a building with the greatest economy of means. Indoor air quality, sound control and day-lighting are all intimately connected to the performance of the shell and mechanical systems of a building. Confluence Architecture is uniquely equipped to maximize this balance to favor the highest quality building possible, with the lowest possible operational and maintenance costs, for the lowest possible construction costs.

“Confluence” is a word that embodies the spirit of our own personal philosophies of architecture. The design process involves the confluence of many skills & disciplines; art & engineering, context & precedence, building & municipal codes, programs & site forces, time & money, etc. all balancing together at one point. That one point is your finished project. It takes planning to be successful, and that’s what we do here.
