At AUTOARCH, we understand that your projects are a long-term commitment. Our team of talented professionals is dedicated to a single purpose: providing elegant architectural solutions that sensitively address the needs of our clients today and tomorrow.

We customize our work plan to meet each client’s goals through a highly participatory planning process. We back up our designs with strong project management, honed over decades of experience. Our project management process includes design-quality management reviews and consultant coordination, budget management, monthly reporting, design scheduling and design-fee cash flow forecasting and trending.

Using the goals, objectives, and space requirements you identify, we create innovative, functional, and operationally efficient design solutions. We do all of this with a close eye on the bottom line, which means one thing: smart design projects that end on time and within budget.


AUTOARCH was founded in 1991 on the Core Belief of the power of Good Design and its effect on the Built Environment, the End User, and the Community.


Our team consists of experienced architects who develop the projects starting with a sketch and following it up to complete implementation of intended ideas.
