"Why Friar?" We care.

We listen before we act, and our unique designs work in harmony with their surroundings. Our experienced staff – a professional team made up of architectural, interior design, mechanical / electrical / plumbing / fire protection engineering, and landscape architectural designers – are committed to quality through teamwork.

In business since 1974, Friar Associates blends the art and science of architecture in developing successful buildings and related environments. Seeking valuable input from our clients, we believe open collaboration leads to responsive solutions. We use function, value and efficiency as the basis for designs that respect existing aesthetics while achieving creative solutions. We further address our clients' multiple and individualized needs by offering other services, such as master planning, code review and high performance building design.
