Our Story

At Cundy, Santine & Associates Architects, LLC (CSA Architects), we provide design services for the new construction and remodeling of commercial and residential buildings. We are dedicated to providing a high quality of personal service to our clients. We believe that all projects are best served by the active participation of the principals during the entire process. Our clients include developers, contractors, governmental agencies, homebuilders, and nonprofit groups, as well as private clients. Our experience in the construction industry allows us to provide buildable, economical solutions to our clients’ needs.

We firmly believe that the completion of a successful project is the result of a team made up of the owner/developer, contractor, and architect working together. Forming this team early in the process is the key to reaching the common goal of success. With few exceptions, each project is a one of a kind project. Interpreting the clients goals, identifying and analyzing the design requirements are crucial. In Accomplishing these tasks as a team will result in a project that completely satisfies the function, is adaptable to changes, requires minimum energy consumption and utilizes materials efficiently and cost effectively.

The Principals at Cundy, Santine & Associates Architects are dedicated to examining the issues of housing for the changing population. Because of our experience we were among the first architects selected and qualified to be nationally recognized as Certified Active Adult Specialists in Housing (CAASH). This designation recognizes housing professionals that have the essential knowledge and experience to serve this fast growing segment of the population. 

Many people expect architects to design only large commercial buildings and are surprised to find architects who specialize in smaller scale commercial projects, multi-family housing and residential architecture, especially in the low and medium price range. This is an area of our practice that we find very satisfying and strive to provide our clients with extraordinary personal service.

Residential clients can find more information about us on Houzz, commercial clients can contact us directly to find out more about our specialized services for commercial projects of all sizes.
