Company Profile

William Grater, Diana Pardee Grater and Sanford Kraemer combine their various architectural backgrounds into a team that is dedicated to the pursuit of high quality architectural design.

The design process emphasizes the importance of programmatic requirements, context and construction methods. Each site is analyzed with regard to its natural and historical character with critical design decisions evolving from this initial understanding. Inspired, useful and well crafted spaces develop from a core philosophy that combines measured practicality with an adventurous design spirit.

Close attention to the project during construction has made the firm popular with builders and has helped maintain good relations among the entire project team. As a result, the firm offers complete services while maintaining the personal contact usually required by both modest and more complex projects.
