Sustainable and Historic Building Projects

With over 40 years of experience in architectural design in the Baltimore and Mid Atlantic area, Encore’s registered architects are prepared to handle a variety of projects including:

  • Renovations
  • Additions
  • New construction

Dreams Realized Through Design

A successful architecture project involves working with our clients, contractors and consultants as a team. Project goals can include everything from aesthetic improvements to complete rehabilitation of an existing building or new construction.

Our first step in the design process is deep listening to the client’s needs and dreams to create the program. The program becomes reality through repeated steps of design and client review that get closer and closer to the dream.

Throughout the design process we work with the team to receive expert input and analysis. Client communications range from hand drawn sketches to computer assisted design (CAD) drawings to photo-realistic renderings.
