Built on the principal and need of mending design form and function, Addis Architecture encourages unique and critical thinking when applying traditional Architectural practices to everyday life.

We look forward to challenges, thinking outside the box, and pushing the limits of creative design. The days of "one size fits all" are (thankfully) over, with a trend in clients who bring more construction & design experience and knowledge to the table. We are here to assist, create, develop and extract the ideas, needs and wants of a client to provide a one-of-a-kind, properly functioning space for a truly custom design.

Continuing relationships among colleagues, builders, designers, tradesman, suppliers and clients is why we are positioned to provide the path of least resistance to a successful project.

Our view of Architecture, not as a job or work, but as our passionate way of life. The natural step from design to building and construction  ensure projects continue on a path to success. We offer full Architectural Services including Project Planning, Design, Construction Documents, Permitting, Bidding & Negotiations, and Construction Management.
