Chris Cobb Architecture is a collaborative design office committed to the craft of architecture. Our primary focus is on tailor-made residential and purpose-built commercial architecture for creative agencies, cultural institutions, and non-profit entities. Our best work comes from partnering with quality-conscious clients who care deeply about the places they live and work.
We approach every project with openness and enthusiasm. Each is seeded with a strong, inspired idea that is honed through a forward-thinking, iterative design process. Each is developed through the guiding principles of usefulness, simplicity, refinement, resourcefulness, and craft. Each is expressed through the measured use of form, light, structure, materials, and focused detailing.
