Architect. Architecture. Architecture firm. These are all terms that may come up in conversation, for any industry where brick and mortar is still relevant. However, architecture firms can be vastly different regarding services offered and design specialization. Keep reading to see what architecture firms do, a preview of some architecture firm clients, and how to bring a project to life.

What is an architecture firm?

An architecture firm is a company that employs architects, designers, and support staff to work with clients, creating the interior and structural design of buildings. An architecture firm is responsible for providing a specific portion or all of the design and build process. From surveying to initial designs to permits to construction, an architecture firm can have its hands in any piece of the process.


At an architecture firm, the design process includes more than just architects. Collaboration with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers (MEP), permitting specialists, computer-aided design (CAD) technicians, and more are all possible additional professionals to work with within one or many architecture firms.
