Civic, Commercial, and Planning Projects

Design Group Architects has been involved in the design of both civic and commercial architecture, as well as, Master Planning for specific development projects, and Community Planning for the City of Sedona. Our planning work has been at the local level, where we have been advocates of solutions that retain and enhance the traditional small-town atmosphere of Sedona and other Western communities, emphasizing pedestrian oriented patterns, and the integration of specific architectural projects into their greater urban context.

We have a particular interest in meaningful public spaces. Our architecture for projects as diverse as the Sedona Public Library, El Portal Inn, and the Forest Service Trailhead Shelter at Bell Rock, reflect both our understanding of the historic roots of Sedona, and the current needs of our modern southwestern community. We also understand the need for greater sustainability in design and construction, and will utilize green building principles in planning projects wherever possible.

We have also designed interior spaces for commercial tenant improvements, restaurant remodels, and professional offices. We take the same care and time as with our residential designs, and have a process that insures our client’s goals are maximized, whatever the scale of the project.
