We recognize every piece of the built environment as a part of the
history of the place – it is our goal to evaluate all components
of the existing conditions without preconceived ideas. We seek to
enrich our projects through selective removal and adding new layers
to the existing historic fabric.
It is our firm belief that well - designed environment improves the
quality of its occupant’s lives. To achieve this we pay attention
to detail, make surfaces and parts pleasant to touch, spaces comfortable
to live in, and buildings easy to use. It is our goal to increase
beauty without pretentiousness.The success of the firm can be attributed
to the collective experience of the individuals of the firm and the
promotion of the following principles:
A Clear Design Process:
All projects, regardless of size, are developed through a series of
schemes or alternates, which are used as a vehicle to define programmatic
and user needs as well as budgetary constraints.
Eifler & Associates Architects strives to promote the active involvement
of the Owner and Contractor at all phases of project development and
construction. The participation of a contractor or pricing consultant
at the design phase of a project is particularly valuable.
Craft & Detail:
Experience with a variety of building types and architectural vocabularies,
has led to an understanding of both traditional and current building
technologies. Every project is conceived with a respect for traditional
building techniques and the manner in which they can be used to respond
to the context of the site and regional climatic conditions.
It is our goal to provide economically and ecologically sound solutions.
To attain this goal, we utilize existing structures to the greatest
extent feasible. We strive to use healthy, natural, ecologically and
economically sound building materials. Energy conservancy is sought
through choice of materials, building operating systems, construction
details and sensible overall layouts.
