Amanda Orr Architects
Founded in 2009, Amanda Orr Architects is a multi-disciplinary firm specializing in various architectural needs. We strive to create complete projects that respond to the functional, aesthetic and economic desires of each client by establishing a close working relationship and dialogue throughout the design process. We find each project to be a new and challenging creative adventure. New architectural structures are exciting as we are able to establish the client’s personal style + family needs and develop those into a structure that blends seamlessly with its surroundings and environment. Renovations are different in nature, but in a good way. We work to enhance the existing architectural style of the structure with an up-to-date addition/renovation; this will extend the life of the home for many years, and it is a joy to witness each client’s utilization of these enhancements.
