The principals of Element 5 Architecture bring separate interests and specializations that combine in a distinct architectural approach and allow us to accept commissions for a broad range of projects – from small residential designs to larger scale urban commercial developments. We approach each project by analyzing the environmental influences on a site and seeking a solution that’s both aesthetically pleasing, energy efficient and meets our clients’ goals.
We are committed to unique, aesthetically pleasing, energy-efficient designs that highlight elements unique to Austin.
Our architectural design philosophy is rooted in the natural environment of Central Texas, and our goal is to improve the livability of our city by making a noticeable contribution to the aesthetic of the Austin built environment.
We approach all of our project timelines and budgets with a high level of personal and professional accountability and transparency. We don't see the budget as a limit, but as an opportunity to be creative about how we achieve the needed solutions.
“Our differences give the firm strength. We each have a unique approach and ‘eye’ with regard to architectural design. The result is a ‘whole is greater than the sum of the parts’ effect.” --- Drew Randall
