The challenge of architectural practice involves finding the balance between the poetic (design) and the technical (construction) aspects of each project.
Here at Matthew Stais Architects, we enjoy architectural theory, but are more interested in practical application. We believe in the necessity of actual doing. It's the only way to get buildings built.
We're located in Breckenridge, Colorado, and specialize in hospitality work for resort locations, with a strong emphasis on sustainable design, construction, and facility operations. The environment and climate of the Rocky Mountain West demand a design response which relates to the landscape, captures sun and views, while providing protection from the elements.
Since 1995 our firm has been creating memorable architecture, by listening to our clients, capitalizing on opportunities to provide beautiful, buildable designs while being sensitive to the realities of budget and schedule. We understand business, and people, and realize the importance of providing exceptional client service.
