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 a finely tailored suit that is completely customized for you.  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.  We feel the more decisions you make upfront, the better project you will have in the end with a more realistic idea of costs before you start to build.

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. Patti is the quintessential Jersey Girl Architect!

Chris spearheads our technical expertise and manages the Virginia division of our work. Our ability to provide you with Three-dimensional solutions ensures you and the builder understand every aspect of your project. Chris’s experience with our software produces a document set that clearly shows how we intend to solve your spatial problem.

We realize that our lives are continually changing, requiring physical spaces to be adaptive. 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


"We were very pleased to have Patti work on our home project. She is very professional and her work is outstanding. We are absolutely very satisfied and would recommend her.” - Adam L.

A small space doesn’t mean less time goes into the design. Sometimes our smaller projects require the most amount of thought and time. Smaller spaces require an experienced architect with insight of lifestyles, productivity and functional design.

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.
