About Train Architects : Train Architects is an award-winning team specializing in new construction, additions, adaptive re-use, historic preservation, and interior design. With over 20 years of experience, the firm regularly works with commercial, institutional, residential, religious, and educational clients.

It is our philosophy that providing clients with quality facilities in a timely manner at a fair cost is entirely reasonable, absolutely achievable, and results in the best projects. Our approach is to consider budget and schedule as normal components of the project parameters to be identified, agreed to, and worked within.
STATEMENT OF ART:
We use rhythm, proportion, balance, and scale to achieve visual cohesiveness. This addition of traditional architectural values and concepts gives our projects a rigor in thought and execution that is comprehensible in intent and elegant in reality. We create architecture which responds appropriately to the environment, creating a seamless connection between built and natural form. Enhancing our work is our love of materials, which we use in a straightforward, honest manner.
