Design Approach

go here Design is a collaborative process.  We believe that successful design is the result of having a comprehensive understanding of the project goals and expectations.  Through the use of a Collaborative Planning and Design Process (CPDP), a planning committee is assembled to participate in various workshops and meetings to discuss the relevant criteria related to the project such as: scope, function, context, aesthetics, environment, budget and scheduling.


Quality Control

A.L.R. Architecture is committed to design excellence and technical expertise.  We understand that successful projects require a thorough and creative design process combined with well coordinated design production and a comprehensive quality assurance program. The foundation of our quality assurance program in Principal leadership of every project completed by our firm.



I have worked with Bill Ashlin AIA, Kent Reid AIA and Min Lee AIA for over 15 years .  Projects they were responsible for ranged from small yet intensive renovation projects up to new high school projects with budgets of $45 million.  During that time and on multiple projects. I found all three to be very responsive to client needs and technically excellent in putting together institutional  facility projects.

I would not hesitate to use any of the three principles of ALR Architecture as designer for future projects.
