Christopher Derrick, AIA's Summary

Derrick Architecture is an architectural firm that specializes in residential design, renovation and interiors. Derrick Architecture’s primary goal is to provide thoughtful and dedicated professional service to its clients by producing the highest levels of design quality possible while adhering to our clients’ tastes and budget. Although our work is in a variety of architectural styles, it is firmly rooted in the traditional vernacular merged with contemporary living that satisfies the aesthetic preferences of our diverse clientele.

We believe that each home should be unique. By utilizing the proper proportions, scale and balance and the correct materials, we are able to create beautiful houses. By accounting for each detail and view and incorporating our client’s lifestyle, we create highly personalized homes. Beautiful details and spaces, as well as proper flow in a house will draw you through the home, creating engaging views as you move from one room to the next. A new home should evoke feelings of comfort and satisfaction as well as providing permanence and security. A new home is meant to be experienced as much as simply lived in. There is a sense of accomplishment derived from knowing that we have contributed to a piece of art that will leave behind a legacy, while inspiring enjoyment for our clients, for years to come.
