Gnome is an architecture and design firm focused on creating high-quality commercial and residential projects that merge multi-faceted design solutions with everyday life.
As designers rooted in residential architecture, the word home can mean many different things. The garden gnome has become a symbol recognized all over the world, marking a place of being; where someone has chosen to put down roots. Our work centers around the user, creating unique solutions that adapt to the different constraints of each project. Beyond the focus of the home, our firm’s wealth of hands-on experience, a deep understanding of zoning code requirements, and our focus on materials and how they are applied, allow us to maximize the potential of each project. We specialize in designing new multi-family, mixed-use residential buildings, and private residences, as well as converting existing buildings to bring about new life. Having backgrounds in both architecture and real estate development, we have been in the shoes of both the homeowner and the investor and recognize the importance of efficiency on all sides of a project. As designers, it is our goal to create holistic housing solutions that are responsible, flexible, and respond to budget constraints. Our knowledge of construction methodologies and a diverse background of projects at a variety of scales gives us the ability to get your project from concept to completion.
