Commercial Projects

We believe that good design elevates business and has a direct, measurable impact on people. You can see the end results in the spaces we design, each equally inviting for customers and employees.

"We loved how Red Barn was able to listen to our vision, the inspiration for it, and the community-building goals we set for it, then take all that information and turn it into a physical reality."

For our multifamily clients

“We found Red Barn through a social media post. We loved their design aesthetic and were looking for a new architect as our business was shifting to focus on high-performance, green buildings. We met with Ryan and Caitlin and knew very quickly Red Barn was the right fit for Brown Dog Properties. Ryan’s field experience saves us a lot of time on each design because he can easily put himself in our shoes. Red Barn works to ensure our home designs are not only beautiful and perform flawlessly, but that they are also manageable from a build perspective.”

We work with you to develop a feasible design that satisfies municipal requirements and meets your budgetary goals. Early considerations include establishing a unit count (often dictated by parking requirements), project density, and overall development scheme. We create final construction documents (floor plans and elevations, building sections, and all necessary details) required by the building inspector to secure building permits. We also monitor construction as part of the building code mandated process known as “Construction Control”. When your project is complete, we issue an affidavit and provide the necessary support your legal team needs to submit Condominium Documents to the Registry of Deeds.

We can generate three-dimensional renderings (interior or exterior) and flythrough videos at any point in the process. These can be extremely useful in the approvals process, gaining buy-in from interested parties, and for pre-sales and marketing needs.
