Principle Architect Chris Bonner is an award-winning designer, a registered architect in four states, a graduate of Virginia Tech, and a licensed Realtor in South Carolina; but foremost, he is curious of the world around him. He realizes that each decision, project, and experience is a chance to learn something new. Thus creating knowledge that can be applied to the next challenge.
With an inquisitive, travel-filled life, Chris has spent time throughout the United States, visited more than 30 countries spanning 5 continents, and passed through nearly 70 airports. It’s not about the numbers though, rather the rich and varied experiences, cultures, and Architecture that can be explored. It’s these precedents and living examples that help enrich the design and logic of our projects. From the colorful medieval cites of Europe, to the intricate wood joinery of Japanese temples, the celebrated planning examples of Vancouver, and even our own greatly admired Charleston Single, are all relevant and varied examples of the wealth of knowledge that we can bring to your project.
We take pride in designing to the human scale, and elevating the experience of the individual and/or group no matter the size of the project. An Architect does more then draw pretty pictures. We transform your ideas and vision into a built project that can be enjoyed for generations. When you are ready to build, make sure you engage a qualified Architect to protect your investment.
