Purple Cherry Architects

The mission of Purple Cherry Architects is to create beautiful residences that provide clients with an enduring sense of comfort and harmony. Founded in 1996 by architect Cathy Purple Cherry, the 18-person firm offers full architecture and interior design services on projects ranging from renovations and additions to new homes.

“We seek to understand not only the physical, but also the emotional relationship a client will have with a particular space or structure, and how that translates to design,” explains Purple Cherry. “From the initial client inquiry through project completion, our team is devoted to being servants in the creation of exceptional homes.”

To that end, the firm employs the latest technology from design to documentation. With all projects developed in 3D software, clients are able to explore their homes via a 3D viewer. “These models allow a quick understanding of the massing and volume of the home,” Purple Cherry observes. “And we encourage clients to create virtual idea boards to help us capture their preferences and inspirations.”

Cathy Purple Cherry, who has been recognized with more than 35 design awards, takes pride in guiding homeowners through the design process step by step. “When the journey is truly successful,” she reflects, “architects are the creators of places and spaces that evoke joy, inspiration and contentment.”
