At its most fundamental, architecture should make life better for its inhabitants, and it should contribute richness and vitality to its community. Rosenman Associates Architects, the successor firm to Root Rosenman Architects, meets these challenges in public, commercial and private commissions through a careful balance of problem solving, craft and artistry. With flexibility and versatility, common-sense design solutions are found that not only satisfy our clients' needs but also reflect their aspirations.
Each project is addressed on its own terms, without preconception. Rather than pursuing the lures of transitory fashion or individual style, the firm's approach to design is characterized by responding to a specific place and the enduring considerations of use, elegance, reason and craft. In an ongoing collaboration with each client, information is gathered, project needs are evaluated, and then thoughtfully considered concepts are proposed. The consistent objective is to produce architecture that responds logically and gracefully to its context and to the client's priorities and resources.

A complement to this high standard for design is an equally high standard for the technical execution of design ideas, with meticulous attention to detail. To ensure their sound implementation, projects are conceived in terms of logical building science and technology. Conservation of natural resources contributes to both the livability and sustainability of the firm's work. Respect for a client's budget is paramount, as the quality of a project is not so much a matter of cost, but how wisely funds are allocated. To ensure that these standards are met, the firm maintains an unwavering commitment to the daily involvement of its principals and senior leadership on all project assignments.


Rosenman Associates Architects has expertise in the design of offices, university buildings, research laboratories, museums, historic structure renovations, residential projects, and many other building and project types. The firm provides comprehensive professional services in the areas of feasibility analysis, programming, architecture, urban design and interiors, through all phases of design, cost control, construction drawings, specifications, bidding and construction administration.
