Robert M. Gurney, FAIA

The office of Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect designs meticulously detailed, modern residential and commercial projects that are sensitive to site, program and budget. Materials are employed with honesty, integrity and ecological awareness. Interior spaces are active and intricate, tranquil and minimal.

Whether addressing a structure in a complex historical district or on a vacant lot, the design process involves an understanding of site-specific issues, availability of materials and construction methods. Projects are sustainable, durable and timeless.

Design solutions arrive through the thoughtful manipulation of light, color, texture, form and geometry, with results that are simultaneously complex and distilled. Attention to detail and awareness of location, landscape and history lead to finished projects that respect historical, topographical and regional contexts without being revivalist.
