ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN:

Berglund Architects
Excellence through detail-oriented design

Founded by architect Hans Berglund in 2004, Berglund Architects is a Colorado-based firm that specializes in custom single-family homes, multi-family residential and mixed-use commercial architectural design for the mountain environment. As one of the leading high-end architecture firms in the Vail Valley, the company is known for its innovative, high-quality architecture that blends local vernacular designs and natural materials with contemporary influences and mountain modern style.

Berglund Architects takes a collaborative approach that encourages ideas to flourish and results in exceptional design. After using freehand sketches to explore and communicate design concepts, the company employs state-of-the-art software to create 3D computer images. Customers find that these detailed interior and exterior images, combined with computer animation, result in a more enjoyable design process and fewer changes during construction.

As the company’s founder Hans Berglund explains, “We ensure that design is rooted to its place, responds to the natural environment and merges with the landscape. Using a palette of regional, natural materials, we create buildings that are rich with color and texture, durable, intelligent, artful and highly crafted.”

Drewett Works Architecture
Designing homes that are a reflection of clients’ lives

CP Drewett, AIA, NCARB, founder and president of Scottsdale-based Drewett Works Architecture, believes that a home should be a true reflection of who a client is. “I begin every project exploring the way a client lives, works, plays . . . the fabric of their daily lives,“ he explained. Then, by using hand-drawn renderings, 3D computer modeling and virtual reality, the DW team blends centuries-old techniques with modern technology to present design concepts in an engaging and frame-worthy way. With an ability to navigate the design review process in even the most demanding communities and municipalities, the DW team expediently moves projects from dreams to reality.
