Award Winning Architect in NWA

My Mission is to design and create environments that can nurture personal growth and peace, whether it is expanding one’s mind as it is intended in educational facilities, raising one’s spirit as it is the goal in places of worship, breeding success as it is intended in commercial and business environments,  nurturing growth through serving others as it is intended in non profit, governmental or civic projects, or seeking refuge and peace as it is the hope in one’s home. By doing so and maintaining a responsible sustainable design, while respecting my client’s budget, I can contribute to well being of human beings, one at a time, fulfilling my social responsibility as an architect. By respecting the context of a project I can enhance the personal experience of all people as it relates to built environment.

“ability to listen to our ideas, and to present new and often better ideas of her own”

We interviewed Laleh Amirmoez when starting an expansion project along with 4 other local architects and chose her because of her ability to listen to our ideas, and to present new and often better ideas of her own. She worked well with our construction manager and met with us regularly during the project. We will gladly use her again for future projects.
