A definition of Artisan Architectures’ design/build alliances.

Artisan architecture is an inclusive alliance formed between the practitioners of the art and craft of construction. It is formed for the sake of excellence in the design and execution of buildings. It is a synergistic interdependent team approach. The teams are formed based on trust, respect and a commitment to unimpeachable integrity. Honor is extended to each team member with particular respect for their realm of skill, talent, and expertise.

All human character remains flawed while yet developing, we are all imperfect. We each subscribe to and aspire to these tenants. These are shared values, goals and principals not simply words.
