It is the mission of Short and Brennan Architects to achieve excellence in design, to provide unparalleled service to our clients, and to practice architecture professionally and responsibly while contributing to our community and society. We have actively led and participated in the community planning process and have designed and constructed projects on both new and existing sites.  We work closely with our clients and the community to create the best designed project possible.  Our projects are successful because they reflect the spirit of collaboration which is vital in meeting the goals set forth for the project and the concerns of all those involved.

We are considered experts in our field and have won numerous awards for our projects.  We proudly boast a significant ratio of repeat clients with a high satisfaction rate, consistently deliver projects on time and on budget, and have fun while doing so.  The breadth and depth of our experience in planning and design include the following project types:
