Discover Great Design

At Parson Architecture, we believe in Great Design for Great People – our clients. We also firmly believe that great design doesn’t “just happen.” It requires a clearly defined process, and carefully focused effort. We painstakingly develop each design individually, by taking our clients’ needs and desires and mixing them with our very best strategic architectural thinking.

We start our design process with each new client by working with them to develop their Wish List and Big Dreams. If you think of a chef preparing a gourmet meal, the Wish List and Big Dreams would be like ingredients for the meal. But a great and memorable meal takes more than just throwing together some ingredients – it requires the right recipes, equipment, techniques, and expertise.

We wish we could show in pictures how our clients’ lives experience a dramatic “Before and After” through the process of working with us. The freedom and ease of living that emanate from a life well lived, in a well designed space, just can’t be captured in pictures and words.

Imagine what your life would be like in a home customized to fit your lifestyle like a bespoke suit or couture gown – or like your most comfortable, best loved pair of old jeans. Picture yourself coming home at the end of a long workday to a place that’s not just your house, but your refuge from the world, your own realm of delight, created just for you.

We believe our process sets us apart, and our clients agree. Here’s what Parson Architecture clients have to say about us on

“We were looking to do a major remodel on our home and were immediately drawn to Earl’s designs. After meeting with him, we knew that he was someone we could end up working with . . . He takes the time to get to know the client and understands their needs.”

“Earl provided multiple layout options to consider with pros/cons of each version. He also was a great asset navigating through the permit process with ease. His demeanor is kind and conscientious; and his work is thoughtful…”

“He gave me plenty of opportunity to give feedback into the project and kept me closely updated on his progress all along the way.”
