We are inspired human beings.
Whether wandering the sidewalks of Pompeii, stepping up onto the brilliantly repurposed New York Highline, looking out over the ancient Loess Hills along the Missouri River Valley, or backpacking our girls above the timberline in the Rocky Mountains, we are inspired to bring an essence of these moments into our lives and our work.
In keeping with the natural world around us and the indispensable architecture of past ages, today’s built environments should be fitting and lasting backdrops for meaningful existence, inspiring our work, our play, and the myriad experiences life carries us through. Our love for design and its effect on humanity has brought us into this practice.
After an invaluable decade of architecture and interior design experience at the midwest offices of RDG Planning & Design and Carlson West Povondra Architects, and the east coast offices of Clark Nexsen, we began our practice in early 2019.
Our combined experience on over 75 projects encompasses a variety of project types including corporate, mixed-use, public schools, non-profit early childhood education, higher education, historic renovation, LEED certification, retail, hospitality, civic and federal facilities, amongst others.
We look forward to each project, small or large, as an opportunity to bring enriching, vital, sustainable and collaborative solutions to our clients. We offer a full range of services, including pre-design, re-zoning, tax increment finance (TIF) consultation, architectural and interior design services, engineering consulting and construction administration.
Through our collaboration, we seek to create architecture that is for our time, yet timeless, respecting the materials and the art of our trade while bringing unexpected solutions within project time, cost and site constraints. Although our work is often modern, we remain grounded in a love for history and timeless craftsmanship.
At its root, ‘Scoppa’ is an Old English word for “workshop”, as in a shop where one practices a craft. We see our work as a continuation of this tradition of carefully crafted design, impelled by the immeasurable spirit of creativity & growth that we all share.
