About Us

Vertical Arts Architecture is a full-service, multi-disciplinary firm of highly experience and visionary designers, planners and technicians providing a menu of architecture, land planning, interior, and landscape design services.

Who We Are

Vertical Arts is an architectural, landscape and interior design firm specializing in creating some of the nation’s most unique residential and commercial spaces. Our award-winning work ranges from custom estates and mixed-use professional buildings to resorts and equestrian facilities.

How We Work

Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to build the right team for each client. From there, the “concierge,” service side of our business sets us apart. Your creative team takes full responsibility as your personal advocate, solving all problems from start to completion. The balance of team and technology allows us to care for clients starting early in the process, getting it right the first time, every time.

Our Design Process

The foundation of our design and development process is Envisioning, one of the most important components of schematic design and planning. Through Envisioning, we carefully explore the major concepts and ideas of the project—owner goals, a site’s history, surrounding environment, local design guidelines, materiality, etc—and develop the overall “story” of the site and setting. With this we craft the creative concept and the technical strategy that is the foundation for the development. The result is an invaluable tool for the client, the design team and critical stakeholders.
