About Genesis Architecture, LLC


Genesis is a small, full service architectural practice that works with its clients as a member of a project team that includes the Owner (and/or tenant), Architect and Contractor, that has the advantage of providing its clients with the service, economy and flexibility not typically found in larger firms. Genesis is well equipped to serve your needs from small remodeling projects to new construction. Specifically, remodels, renovations and additions are Genesis' specialty. Along with over 35 years of providing quality architectural service to clients, Genesis also has over 15 years of clean room design experience for the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. Each Genesis project receives the personal attention it deserves. Geared towards providing the full range of architectural services, peripheral services such as ADA site surveys and facility assessments can also be provided.

It is Genesis' goal that each client receives the personal attention he or she deserves from a senior member of Genesis. Our number one priority is the understanding of the Client's business objectives and to deliver on those objectives throughout the entire design process. We also provide the added value of having a staff member who has worked as a client and as a "service provider" giving us the unique capability to understand and deliver on the client's needs.

While Genesis works with a select group of qualified consultants, we are also open to working with any qualified professionals that may be a part of the Client's project team.
