Square Footage is a detail oriented, full service design firm with a wide range of experience including residential and commercial building design, construction supervision, interior and furniture design as well as graphic design.

From the onset, our intent is to thoroughly analyze and understand the specific issues required to develop a resolution to a variety of design challenges. Exploration of each of these facets of design continually results in informing and expanding the understanding of each other facet of design.

The process is an active collaboration between the client and the designer in order to fulfill the needs and ultimate potential of each design challenge or project.

Our design process intends to result in the act of making a tangible form specifically tailored to satisfy the needs and desires of each client.
