The Philosophy of Our Architectural Design Company in Concord, CA

At arete, inc., we truly believe Aristotle’s words, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” For residential and commercial building projects, the parts are all the people that have a voice in the design.

At our architectural design company in Concord, CA, the process begins with our clients that share their vision of the function and purpose of the new building with our team. Our experienced architects take that vision and translate it into renderings. We also consider what developers, landlords, and other significant stakeholders say about the design. This all comes together in a building that meets the functional and aesthetic expectations of everyone involved.

This approach is highly successful and has resulted in our firm winning the Gold Nugget Merit Awards in the category of Five Best Custom Houses. We consider this a tribute to our guiding principles of collaboration, teamwork, and collective wisdom.

With more than 40 years of experience, we consider ourselves true professionals, but this does not allow us to rest on our laurels. Instead, we use this experience to boost our creativity and innovation when working on your architectural design.
