Our unique management and design delivery model allows us to serve clients across the country.

One founding principle that was set for the establishment of Harris Architects was to build a practice based on the talents of gifted professionals from multicultural backgrounds. We believe unique and inspiring works of architecture are achieved when designers from diverse cultures lead the planning and design process.  Clients who engage Harris Architects select us because we deliver thoughtful design that consistently achieves noteworthy recognition as a result of our platform of talent diversity.  We believe our portfolio is indicative of our uniqueness, and we invite you to explore several of our projects as you consider Harris Architects.
