Thanks for visiting our website. Our small architectural firm is based in Breckenridge, Colorado. For over 20 years we’ve been actively designing and building in Summit County, Co and the surrounding mountain communities. After all this time, we are still passionate about what we do. Led by Bobby Craig, AIA, Arapahoe Architects founder and principal, we’ve stayed connected to the changes in our community over the years and have made it our business to continue to find innovative and visionary solutions for high-elevation residential and commercial building designs. We like being small and our talented team has expertise in different areas, allowing us to really drill deep and personalize our services to cater to your specific needs! Our specialties are new home plans and designs, energy assessments for both residential and commercial properties and high-elevation land use and planning and development. Another specialty of ours is historic restoration and re-purposing building sites and materials.
Like all industries, architectural procedures keep changing. At Arapahoe Architects, we like to blend the gold standards of architecture with new technology, like an innovative software program called ArchiCad, that allows us to create 3D models of your project. This technology (sometimes referred to as BIM: building information modeling), allows us to create a prototype of your project before even one board is cut. This makes the construction process much easier and makes for a more efficient and economical project. We’re sure you’ll want to see our portfolio, so here are some samples of our latest projects, by type;
- Custom Homes
- Commercial Projects
- Remodels and Renovations
- Residential Remodels
- Energy Renovations
- Historic Renovations
- Land Planning
