Acheson Doyle Partners Architects, P.C. (ADP) is a diverse organization that provides comprehensive architectural services in important market sectors. Our portfolio represents a depth of experience in hospitality, educational, institutional, ecclesiastical, cultural, residential, commercial and corporate projects. With notable expertise in design, planning, historic rehabilitation, zoning and sustainable design, we bring to our clients a wide ranging approach to problem solving. Since the firms founding, Acheson Doyle Partners has been committed to the long-term preservation and efficient re-use of our built environment. A responsible design approach that incorporates the sustainability principles of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is a hallmark of our practice.
Architecture: The profession of architecture is by nature a discipline that requires skill and dexterity from the practitioner. Every building typology and program requires a unique approach that balances what is theoretical with what is practical, transforming the possible into the real.Integrating considerations of function, place and constructability, with a broader understanding of form, symbolism, history, and cultural context, ADP recognizes that the practice of architecture is a collaborative process that succeeds only with the active participation of the client.
Design: Architecture is merely building if there is no point of view, no intention—no design vision. ADP fundamentally believes that design stems from a synthesis of the client’s goals with the imagination of the practitioner, filtered through the constraints of site, program, budget and regulatory requirements that every project faces. Design adds immeasurably to the qualitative value of a project; it brings art to architecture.
Planning: ADP has a well-deserved reputation for excellence in planning—from the macro scale of master planning at the size of city blocks to the micro scale of individual project planning. We offer our clients exemplary knowledge of the myriad of zoning, code and land-use regulations that shape the urban environment. Our decades long history of getting projects built is demonstration that we can provide our clients with invaluable assistance in bringing their projects—at any scale—to fruition.
Preservation: For over 20 years, Acheson Doyle Partners has become a leader in the restoration, rehabilitation and adaptive-reuse of existing buildings. We believe it is wasteful to prematurely demolish structures and that an active revitalization strategy is a balanced approach to preservation. We give great credence to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
