DePietro Design Associates Core Values


DePietro Design Associates is a purpose-driven firm.

Over (3) decades of practice, our work has been characterized by an unwavering dedication to social responsibility and design excellence. As an architectural firm we utilize state-of-the-art technology, yet our firm is intentionally small to allow each member of the project team to work closely and personally with our clients. We also make it a practice to assemble a team of the best possible consultants specific to each project.

DePietro Design Associates was founded on the belief that design has the power to transform our lives, our culture, and our communities. Here at DePietro Design Associates we weave the threads of design excellence into the fabric of the firm's culture, combining the passion for scale, finish and balance with function, fit and harmony. We are experienced professionals skilled in the organization of complex and complicated projects, whether large or small. We deliver each project with responsive, tailored, technically excellent, and a consistently high standard of service to the complete satisfaction of our clients which is the ultimate measure of our success.

Each project is approached individually. At DePietro Design Associates we foster a team dynamic that gives everyone a voice while providing the right expertise at key decision points. We begin with our clients and their communities and extend to the multidisciplinary consultants with whom we collaborate from the earliest stages of the project. Our design approach begins with a detailed analysis of each site, program and community, identifying the economic, environmental and social forces that will give form to the design solution. We then synthesize these unique characteristics with broader criteria for habitat creation, watershed protection, mobility, energy production, sustainability, and indoor environmental quality.

Our firm believes that the design process should be a memorable experience for our clients. This is a period of creation, a rare opportunity to develop their dreams. Clients should feel that they are understood, that their ideas are integral to the design, and they should have the confidence that the building's design will ultimately reflect the architectural vernacular and values of their vision. The client's input throughout the project is considered to be at the core of the planning process. By engaging our clients in a rich dialog during the design process we gain a holistic view of their budget, goals, objectives, needs, and vision. We then integrate creativity and innovation, to solve complex problems and transform our client's vision into dynamic reality.

Our belief is that successful buildings are a carefully constructed collage of forms and spaces that is at once dynamic, aspiring and meaningful.

Here at DePietro Design Associates we will be a partner you can trust.
