Metro DC’s Architect Designing For Your Lifestyle For 25+ Years
Memorable, Creative, Sustainable Architecture Interiors & Construction in the DC Area for over 25 Years. The character of our buildings is as diverse as the individuals they house and the surroundings in which they are located. We are interested in suiting each design to the client, the geographical and community context. Our strong interest is to envision the best composition, the most simple and elegant solution for our client. We believe that people make natural associations with form, composition and light. Design is a very intuitive and metaphorical process, we work in close collaboration to understand how the space will be occupied and used. Design a space appropriate to the client’s needs, make it as beautiful as possible and practice economy and energy efficiency where needed as possible. Cathleen Curtin, RA, AIA received her Architecture Degree while studying in North Carolina under Michael Graves FAIA, Charles Gwathmey FAIA and Robert A. M. Stern FAIA. Ms. Curtin before beginning her own private residential practice in 1991 served in the U. S. Peace Corps , worked with Chris Lessard, The Martin Architectural Group and The Weihe Design Group with an exclusive focus on residential design. She has designed several homes for developers including Ryland Homes, the national home-building company. Along with numerous residences in the Washington Metro area, Philadelphia, New York, and California, she has renovated and designed condominiums and senior residences. She is a member and actively involved in the American Institute of Architects, The Construction Specifications Institute, the National CAD Standard Project Committee, the City of Alexandria Beautification Commission and various local community committees.
