Larchmont Building
Missoula, MT
Completed 2010

Missoula, MT 59802

The owners purchased this once vacant space envisioning a progressively designed office building to house their dental practices and other businesses. Minimal modification to the existing building was a main objective. The existing street-facing storefront was replaced with contemporary brick clad, while the concrete block walls were painted and became a backdrop to an aluminum screen system. A dramatic cantilevered canopy was added to the main entry. Inside, all office suites open into a central day-lit circulation space.

You and your architect:
Getting Started

ask yourself these questions:
  • How will your project be used — do you have specific ideas on how to translate these activities into spaces and square footage?
  • Do you have a site or will this also be a subject of discussion with your architect?
  • Have you decided upon a schedule or budget?
  • What are your overall aesthetic and emotional, as well as practical, aspirations for the project?
