Craft Architecture + Design is an architecture, design, and fabrication studio with a focus on creating thoughtful spaces and functional objects. Craft Architecture + Design is lead by Architect Tristan Shepherd, AIA. Leveraging experience gained on large and small scale projects, and with private, institutional, and government clients, Craft Architecture + Design strives to meet client needs with intense attention to detail, creative problem solving, and craft.
Our target client realm is residential and commercial projects. Our experience lends itself to working at all scales and project types. We are trained creative problem solvers and feel just as at home designing door handles as we do an office building or private residence. Our experience in both the design and fabrication sides of architecture and products gives us a unique advantage that other offices don’t provide. We can utilize our expertise for our client’s best interest by providing design through fabrication and installation services. At our client’s option we can provide service up to any point along the project timeline and where our experience and expertise can be of benefit. Combining design and fabrication under a single roof we are able to provide better products and services to our clients. We are able to produce more accurate, build-able, and innovative drawings for our clients. Fabricating our own designs allows us to leverage our relationships with our clients and knowledge of the project to produce a better product. We feel this business model provides better service and sets Craft Architecture + Design apart from other architecture offices.
