SummA Architecture evolved from the adage that the whole is greater than the SUM of its parts.

We have collaborated for 15 years, constantly challenging the other to create value for our client, consumer and community.  We design projects that get built because they are aligned with current marketing and construction feasibility.

100,000+ of your neighbors live in communities we have helped create.
