Andresen Architecture Incorporated was founded in Southern California in 1994 after Doug Andresen spent many years working in the construction industry and in larger Architectural firms. After facing opportunities to expand, Doug made a strategic decision to remain small, based on one core belief:
Projects are better designed and executed when an experienced Principal Architect manages every aspect of the development and oversees a small group of individuals, starting with the initial planning stages and continuing through the final punch list.
