OUR FIRM IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS:
My firm has been a home based business with all remote workers who are working from their homes since 2008. I chose to run my business in this "virtual firm" model after the last recession started. It was a way to not only save on rent overhead, but also to create a healthy work/life balance for myself and my workers. It also reinforced our design philosophy of "green" practices to do more good than harm by putting an end the polluting practice of car commuting.
Because of our dedication to remote working, we didn't have a large transition at that time the shelter-in-place order started. We have all been working on our clients' projects and are available to start new ones.
For those looking to hire an architect during this time, we have all the necessary technology already set up and the years of experience to work with you from a distance. J Kretschmer, Architect has been open for 17 years with my experience extending to 25 years working on residential and commercial projects in the SF Bay Area. I can also do projects in any other state with my NCARB certificate.
I wish that you, your family and all your friends are able to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic. I have seen that our community is resilient and will pull together so that we will come out from this event stronger than ever.
