Rich specializes in designing modern residential and commercial structures, particularly waterfront properties. Rich Conneen holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Temple University (1985). Prior to opening his own firm, he had a broad range of experience working for firms in Pennsylvania, Texas, California and Colorado. This early work included large-scale commercial, retail, medical, and residential architecture. In addition to his early experience, Rich also worked as a framing and finish carpenter and managed a cement foundation construction crew. He believes that this hands on experience enables him to produce drawings that are not only architecturally pleasing but also very thoughtful in construction detail. RESIDENTIAL DESIGN Residential architecture offers a unique opportunity for a family or individual to realize their dream of a “home”. Our firm recognizes the importance this process. Thoughtful consideration is taken from conception of design to completion of construction to ensure that your house becomes the home you’ve always dreamed of. COMMERCIAL & RETAIL DESIGN Commercial development provides an exciting opportunity to enhance a communities appeal. Good commercial design encourages customers and clients to gravitate to a space. Office space should be inspiring, focused and productive while retail design’s primary focus should be inviting and captivating. Rich Conneen Architects has enjoyed executing both commercial and retail design projects throughout southeast Alaska. Our projects range in size from 90 room hotels to high-end, prosperous retail stores to office park planning and design. RESTAURANT DESIGN We believe a dining experience is not only about the taste of food; it should be pleasing to all the sense. Rich Conneen has had the great pleasure of working with restaurateurs and building owners throughout southeast Alaska. Our firm strives to ensure the restaurant design reflects the desires of the owner/s and is symbiotic in it’s relation to the overall concept and branding of the business. CHURCH DESIGN Rich Conneen is proud to come from a long line of church builders. From Ireland to the eastern seaboard of the United States and now in Alaska, Conneens have been designing and constructing churches for over 100 years! Design of sacred spaces should be reverent and should provide ample opportunity for contemplative prayer as well as space in which a community of followers can celebrate.
We approach architecture from a different point of view – yours. We believe that working closely with you, from the initial concept through completion of the design, produces meaningful, functional, and beautifully original buildings and spaces. Our projects are as distinctive as our clients and as unique as each context where they are located. We strive to create environments that enhance the experience of each user. In order to successfully respond to the needs of our clients, we know that communication is the key. We utilize an open studio, team approach to creating a vision that is uniquely yours. This vision comes to life through a process that involves 3D modeling, allowing you to experience and embrace the project before it’s even completed. We believe this truly gives a new dimension to the creative collaboration we experience with our clients.
