Aptus is more than an architecture firm
We are a relationship-based firm.
We are architects, planners and interior designers who work around an open table.
Flowing ideas. Many questions. We are curious about you.
We believe informal, honest conversation is the best way to build trust.
And trust leads to clarity of purpose, reliable counsel, valued insight.
Whether it’s designing a new building, renovating an existing one, or a bit of both, architecture combines the art and science of design and construction from a macro to micro level. We believe in the age-old idea that architecture should satisfy the Vitruvian principles of Durability, Utility, and Beauty.
More and more, the spaces where we work, eat, and recreate have become increasingly more important to our personal wellbeing. We look at the design of interior spaces with a holistic approach to understanding the benefits to all users.
For projects dealing with the visioning of larger communities and institutions, or helping with a master plan for a new neighborhood, this is when architecture takes a step back to look at the bigger picture.
WHAT’S IN A NAME
“Aptus” is a latin word for “appropriate” or “fitting.” We embrace this concept in the way we design, and how we tailor our services. No two clients are alike. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, we customize our services to meet your needs.
This philosophy explains the great diversity of our project history wherein many various clients have found value in our approach and style of work. Our shared values and commitment to excellence help facilitate the design and coordination process with our consultants, which ultimately serve the best interests of our clients.
