Form & Function Architecture

We are an architecture firm that specializes in commercial, residential, state and municipal architecture in North and South Carolina. With a multi-faceted background in construction, art, design, and mechanics; we are uniquely equipped to think outside the parameters of our discipline allowing for diverse and innovative design solutions. In all of our work, we foster an environment of collaboration and creativity with our clients, creative team, and community.

Skilled In The Pursuit Of








Thorough analysis of the site, client’s needs, project parameters, and code related issues, allows Form & Function to ensure all details of the project are integrated into a cohesive design scheme. The time spent at this beginning phase of a project enables our understanding of challenges that may arise during design and construction, and allows us to be proactive to a solution, and not reactive to a problem.

As stewards of the lives, buildings and environments entrusted to us, it is our goal to minimize a structure’s impact on its surroundings. Each project is unique and various design methods are explored to achieve this goal. Design connectivity to the natural and urban fabric is a fundamental element of our process.

Facades and plans that only serve to meet the basic minimums of the design program miss opportunities to provide visually exciting and unique architecture. We are dedicated to providing design solutions that excel in Form as well as Function.

Building upon our Analysis and Stewardship principals we begin to realistically explore our ideas for how the design, materials and systems can best serve your needs and environment. From large-scale plan design, to the smallest detail sketches, we strive to create the most efficient solution for your needs.
