With seven decades of architectural experience, we possess a thorough understanding of the industry’s unique needs and concerns. We realize the technical, operational, and financial requirements and considerations of education, civic, recreation, wellness, and spiritual facilities. Our team keeps up with the trends and developments our clients face so that we can help them make the best decisions for their new construction, addition, and renovation projects. While we approach every architecture project with the same principles – understanding end-users’ needs, delivering best-in-class space, and earning clients’ trust – no two projects are alike.

"Architecture is the cornerstone of VSWC's interdisciplinary design practice. For 70 years, we have developed the leading architecture practice in Ohio, known for award-winning design excellence and comprehensive expertise."

— Jim Voorhis, Architect & Owner

Integrated Approach

Our integrated approach to architecture provides value from the earliest stages of an idea through the entire design process and post-occupancy aftercare. Working in coordination with facilities personnel and end-users, we fully understand the unique needs of each project and make expert recommendations based on our decades of experience. The highly-trained professionals at VSWC work directly with you and other key decision-makers to evaluate your specific objectives and challenges.

"Each of our projects represents our commitment not only to the individual client, but also to improving the communities in which we work, live and play. A deep dedication to sustainability and social responsibility is fundamental to our outlook, work, and culture."

— Christopher Dumford, Architect & Owner
