Our focus


Capital Architects has had the opportunity to design custom residences as well as renovate, and restore various homes. We would like to help you to create a home of your dreams. We are glad to have free consultations with the new home owners to see how their home can be improved and the dream of your life would come to life.


Capital Architects’ commercial projects have varied over a wide spectrum giving us the ability to take on any project type. From tenant improvements to new construction, we bring experience in to the mix. Rather than being slotted into one building type specialty, Capital Architects’ team is fully capable of any building type challenge.

Historic Preservation

Capital Architects has had the opportunity to work on various historic preservation projects that include adaptive re-use of the historic buildings. From Repair and maintenance to renovations, we pride ourselves in giving back the original splendor that these historic buildings once had, while also re integrating them into the community.

Interior Design

Capital Architect’s interior design projects complement many of our larger projects by giving our attention to detail not only on a large architecture scale but also with every decision for the interiors. The overall quality and standard of finishes and furniture add value to each space and enrich each home.
