The Roman Architect Vitruvius stated that any design must satisfy three criteria – Firmity, Commodity and Delight.


At Horizon Architecture, we rely on our extensive background and knowledge of building systems to design projects that will stand the test of time. We understand the building as a system, not an assembly of parts, and consider how the system functions over time to create durable projects.


We understand that each project is a substantial investment and work closely with you to refine our solutions to maximize value. Our goal is to help you find the most efficient way to meet your needs to make sure there is plenty of room for the wants.


The Architect Louis Sullivan is credited with the phrase “form follows function”. The actual phrase is “form ever follows function”. Sullivan advocated that a building should first and foremost work for its intended purpose and that the form or decoration would naturally follow the function. Much like a flower, the beautiful blossom cannot exist without the roots, stem and leaves, but without the blossom a flower is just a weed. We work with you to create a functional solution and then explore the opportunities that will make you smile and lift your spirit.
