“I was taught early on that it is an architect’s responsibility is to provide a professional service that supports the client’s agenda. I was also taught that it is an architect’s responsibility to protect a client from their own poor decisions. In other words, I’m not supposed to do what you want unless I think you are right.”

Cundy Santine & Associates designs with optimization, I believe, and are largely responsible for the success I have experienced using them as Architects. Shelley is easy to work with, thinks creatively, and effectively communicates all ideas. She has been a true game-changer in identifying and responding to all the areas of construction thru-out the entire process and thus she has my highest endorsement.

CSA Architects designed our preschool and we could not be more impressed with their professionalism, client support, and attention to detail.  They went above and beyond in helping us with all of our questions and they also went above and beyond in designing our building.  They are truly the best and we cannot thank them enough for helping our dreams become a reality!
