Eifler & Associates Architects is an architectural firm that concentrates on achieving a balance of both new design and restoration projects. The firm was founded in 1990 and enjoys a variety of commercial, institutional, and residential work. We recognize every piece of the built environment as a part of the history of the place – it is our goal to evaluate all components of the existing conditions without preconceived ideas. We seek to enrich our projects through selective removal and adding new layers to the existing historic fabric. It is our firm belief that well - designed environment improves the quality of its occupant’s lives. To achieve this we pay attention to detail, make surfaces and parts pleasant to touch, spaces comfortable to live in, and buildings easy to use. It is our goal to increase beauty without pretentiousness.The success of the firm can be attributed to the collective experience of the individuals of the firm and the promotion of the following principles: A Clear Design Process: All projects, regardless of size, are developed through a series of schemes or alternates, which are used as a vehicle to define programmatic and user needs as well as budgetary constraints. Team Approach: Eifler & Associates Architects strives to promote the active involvement of the Owner and Contractor at all phases of project development and construction. The participation of a contractor or pricing consultant at the design phase of a project is particularly valuable. Craft & Detail: Experience with a variety of building types and architectural vocabularies, has led to an understanding of both traditional and current building technologies. Every project is conceived with a respect for traditional building techniques and the manner in which they can be used to respond to the context of the site and regional climatic conditions. Conservation: It is our goal to provide economically and ecologically sound solutions. To attain this goal, we utilize existing structures to the greatest extent feasible. We strive to use healthy, natural, ecologically and economically sound building materials. Energy conservancy is sought through choice of materials, building operating systems, construction details and sensible overall layouts.
2RZ was officially formed in 1992 where its main goal was to merge the construction and design into the practice of architecture. This is where the architect would remain central to the process of design and construction while working with the project team to create a project that exceeds the clients' imagination.

Architecture is a collaborative art, and I actively involve clients and builders in the design process. Architecture too is a portrait of a client, and the style of a project must reflect their character. My work is therefore stylistically diverse: a style must be appropriate before it is "correct;" and no single style is more correct than any other.
