ARG was founded in 1980 with the belief that historic buildings play an important role in communities, creating places that have value and meaning. As a full-service architectural firm, we believe that older buildings can coexist with contemporary uses in positive ways for both the user and community at large; our goal is to enhance architecture through preservation. The firm’s staff includes architects, designers, planners, historians, and materials conservators who work closely together.
