ABOUT

CO-AR stands for cognitive architecture, which represents the founders' desire in creating environments that are sensitive to the way we understand and absorb the environments.

We approach every new project as if it is our own project, pushing the limits at every step to meet all of the specific goals of the client.  

We work with our clients every step of the way, and pride ourselves in being there whenever we are needed - from the first sketch to the final built project.
