We love to take advantage of design opportunities beyond our site. Sophia served five years on the Great Falls Planning Board and Zoning commission, is active in downtown organizations, and is continuously seeking out more neighborhood scale work.

        Just like a custom tailored garment, we set out to find the perfect fit for you. Along the way we encourage you to think about questions such as  "Do you have a space to truly be yourself? Do you have one to be a couple, or a family? What do those look like? If you entertain, how often? Can places transform from their everyday function to accommodate those non-everyday events? Do you like or dislike to be woken by light from an early sunrise? Do you like watching the sunset from your deck?" These questions lead to a personalized program that goes beyond bedroom counts and square footage, so that the end result can optimally support your own life.

          Pocket Neighborhoods, modern Cohousing models, and Mixed Use developments can add a range of lifestyle amenities that have been scientifically shown to boost well-being. These include being able to choose between privacy and different levels of community exposure at any given moment, as well as beautiful outdoor spaces with natural features.

                Sophia's interest in work and education environments informed her research throughout her Master of Architecture program at ASU. Her award-winning thesis about the relationship of stress in work environments with creativity and productivity was published in the Annual Proceedings of the Environmental Design and Research Association in 2006.  In her office work she was charged with a number of creative challenges, reaching from making the Headquartes of a Creative Branding agency "feel like a club", to investment brownfield redevelopment. Current office projects include new offices for FWP and new eployee spaces for VisionNet. Sophia is a WELL accredited Professional, which allows her to incorporate the latest medical and research findings about healthy environments into her projects. WELL  Considerations include supporting quality of Air, Water, Light, Nutrition, Fitness and Mental Health.
