About Us

Design Experts in the Colorado Mountains

Arapahoe Architects

We are mountain architects who seek the intersection of form and function in both our designs and process. We look for innovative and visionary solutions for high-elevation residential and commercial building designs.

Based in Breckenridge, Colorado, we have been designing and building in Summit County and the surrounding mountain areas since 1993. 

Our clients are looking for a design partner they can trust to lead them creatively through their home or commercial construction projects. We keep things simple, collaborative, and transparent every step of the way. We make sure that your project stays within or below budget every time.

Our talented team of architects and designers is led by Bobby Craig, AIA, who is licensed in Colorado, Virginia and the District of Columbia. We have expertise across many areas, allowing us to personalize our services to cater to your needs. Our clients are usually pleasantly surprised with the creative solutions and designs we create for each project.

Diverse + Elegant

How We Work

Our Technology

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.

Our Values

Challenges 

We actually get excited for a challenge. Do you have a piece of land you are considering purchasing or developing that seems unworkable? Do you have a unique concept you are looking for a design partner? Let’s set up a meeting to discuss.

Transparent Communication 

We listen to your preferences and needs. We keep you well-informed throughout the whole process of design, budgeting, and building. We act as your project quarterback – the lead communicator with builders/general contractors, surveyors, engineers and interior designers.

Our Promise

Our owner, Bobby Craig is personally involved in every aspect of the project. He leads with great care and attention to your individual needs and oversees the entire project from start to finish.

Efficiency

Our systems and processes keep us moving efficiently through your project so we can focus on quality and creativity. 

Excellence and Quality 

We care about elegance and exceptional innovation. We’ve been designing and renovating projects in this beautiful but harsh environment at high altitude for more than 20 years. We seek to design homes that are functional for the inhabitants. After a client moves in, they often comment how their home is both very comfortable and functional.
