Welcome to PLM Architect: Architecture + Design

Smartly Designed Space is Transforming™

Smartly designed space ensures that the architecture of your project fits you and your life; like finely tailored clothing.  The right architect makes it easy for you to make confident decisions from the beginning of the design process all the way through to the completion of construction. 

When architecture works, it creates the backdrop for our life’s important moments.

With 25 years of experience, Patti is well versed in different architectural styles and topographical challenges. Whether you are building on the coast, near the city with Manhattan views, or in the mountains on bedrock, we have designed there.

Chris, also a licensed architect, spearheads our technical expertise and manages the Virginia division of the practice. Our ability to provide you with cutting edge three-dimensional solutions ensures complete understanding of every aspect of your project. The combined experience with design and software prowess produces sophisticated solutions and a document set that clearly shows how we intend to craft spaces to enhance the lives of our clients.

We realize all our lives are continually changing, requiring physical spaces to be adaptive without starting over each time we enter a new life-stage. From the cradle to the teenage study space; a great room filled with sports enthusiasts or wine connoisseurs, your physical environment needs us to pay as much attention to the details as you do to your own life.

“I would like to thank you along with my family for the wonderful design of our new home on LBI. Everything flows so well. We all had our ideas and changes and you made it all come together.”

- Judy Bacon

REASONS TO HIRE AN ARCHITECT

Virtual Reality, why wouldn't you?

Spotlight Details

Simply Classic

The definition of classic when used as an adjective is “ judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.”  The Gambrel Roof line along the shore is just that, classic.  Tricky to frame, yet beautiful when the proportions are correct.  Despite, some non-typical forms on this existing house, we were able to give it the facelift and curb appeal the owners desired.  You really do just need to think outside the box sometimes.

Just Another Typical Day

Great design blends seamlessly with the area and existing architecture. It doesn’t stop at the building, it involves the surroundings and how you live in that space. If your architect isn’t asking you how you live your day to day life, they aren’t asking the right questions.

Greens & Grains

Our client was about being fresh and plant based, which is what they sold. They wanted people to understand their business approach as soon as they walked into their restaurant; they wanted the customer to see the green, and see the colorful product selection as soon as they entered. We made this display be a major part of the their brand identity.
