KWS Architecture is committed to providing the best architectural and planning services that balance the client’s program, budget and expectations.  KWS Architecture believes that the creativity and ultimate success of every project is a result of listening to and understanding the client’s desires and requirements.  Imagination is exercised on all levels during the course of architectural services - whether it is creating spatial & aesthetic relationships or technical solutions - to reach the project’s fullest potential.  KWS Architecture encourages the use of Energy Efficient systems and Green Building products when it is compatible with the client’s needs and budget.  We are committed to helping clients make these decisions in a comprehensive and informed way.  Our “EE Green Analysis” includes an analysis of the proposed building’s systems (or a home inspection of your existing building’s exterior walls, windows, doors and mechanical systems) to help us make recommendations as to how to improve the overall performance of the building.  We can integrate passive & active solar, photovoltaic, Geothermal heating & cooling to help you save money on operating costs in the long term.
