History

Our firm started in 1985 in a Victorian-styled house in downtown Elkhart with Gary Frank as the principle.

In 1993, due to growth, the firm moved to our present address at 201 South Nappanee Street, Elkhart, Indiana. The move enabled us growth in experience and personnel.

As many architectural firms, we started out as a general practicing firm looking for work and a niche in the market. With this view, we were able to design a variety of jobs including residential design, ecclesiastical design for churches, office buildings, out-patient surgery centers, retail shopping centers, restaurants, and hotels.

As time passed, we found ourselves being asked to design more and more hotels. Now 70% of our work volume is in the hospitality market. We have become a nationally recommended firm for the Hilton franchise group, although we also have experience and expertise in multiple other brands. We were ranked in the top 100 hospitality design firms in the Hotel Business magazine. Over the past 15 years, we have designed over 150 hotels for various franchises.

We have also become the franchise architects for Wings Etc. as they are developing their national franchise chain of restaurants.
