Propel Studio is a community oriented architecture and public interested design firm dedicated to working with inspiring people and organizations. We look to the triple bottom line – environment, economics, and people – to develop creative solutions for each design challenge.

We are a collaboration of multi-disciplinary designers who are passionate about designing sustainable and beautiful buildings, installations and spaces. Our designs respond to the context in which we build, integrating our architecture into each unique community, responding to climate, culture, and local materials. We work closely with our clients – listening to your needs, expectations and goals – to develop solutions that address program, context and budget.

Propel Studio was founded with the idea that we could give back to our community by providing creative solutions to the built environment. We believe in creating socially responsible architecture that improves our communities for all people. With each project our studio explores the intricacies of the program, the unique aspects of each site, and local climate to develop a strong concept that we follow through the project’s completion. We work at all scales from small pavilions and homes, to neighborhood planning and commercial developments.

We are passionate about what we do. We believe architecture holds immense power to make our world a better place and our mission is to carefully wield our skills to deliver amazing projects for our clients and the community.
