Professional Design, Personal Relationship
At Ratcliffe Architects, we believe an architect’s approach to design reflects the balance between the owner’s vision, the building's function, and cost considerations. At meetings we provide sketches drawn by hand to allow for a direct and clear transfer of design ideas, giving the owner the opportunity to voice their opinions and desires for the project. During this process, the architectural design evolves so that all team members can contribute and focus on programming issues for the specific project, leading to a thoroughly developed project that both the owner and the architect can be proud of.
The Baltimore architecture firm of Ratcliffe Architects was formed to focus on client customization, specifically with private commercial development and custom high-end residential projects. Since 2000, the thriving firm has grown largely through reputation and referral business and now offers the services of 12 architectural professionals, drafting services as well as administrative staff.
