Design Philosophy

Belmont Freeman Architects is a firm committed to providing elegant and appropriate solutions to each client's programmatic needs. We believe in economy of means, both material and aesthetic. We thrive on the analytical rigor required to bring order to complex functional, technical and contextual problems, and the progressive design that their intelligent synthesis can yield. Belmont Freeman Architects is pleased to avoid over-specialization in our practice, and we embrace the opportunities for cross fertilization that the firm's varied project types afford. We likewise embrace environmental responsibility as an essential criterion of architecture, and principles of sustainable design inform our work at every level.
