JOHN PRUETT ARCHITECTS was established in 1991 as an independently-owned architectural consulting firm with an emphasis on project specific design solutions and responsive, attentive client service. 

Our professional services include programming and master planning, architectural design and planning, project management, construction contract administration, ADA compliance surveys, project value-engineering, and existing conditions documentation and feasibility studies. We are committed to achieving clients’ objectives through a technical/aesthetic budget-conscious design methodology and we actively encourage a Design Team-to-Client-to-Builder partnering approach to problem solving. 

A registered professional is directly involved in every aspect of a project, from conceptual design to final inspections. State-of-the-art computer design and production technology allows us to interface with clients and colleagues for superior quality.



We approach every project as a unique design challenge. We recognize that each client, each site and each project represents an opportunity to create a better-built environment.

Our holistic approach to the creation of a more enriched building environment gives consideration to these factors: 

  • Client needs
  • Programmatic requirements
  • Environmental impact
  • Physical context
  • Uniqueness of project-specific opportunities


When we consider a project we tell ourselves the first thing is to “go to school” on the existing context and the ideas and needs of the client.  

What is the building's physical locale? What vision does the client have? How can the various aesthetics incorporate an appropriateness of environmental context? 

Such questions solve all the riddles. We gaze through the metaphorical windows, considering all the questions — as opposed to approaching a project with a pre-conceived style or building plan based on category or personal taste.
