|About Pendulum Studio:|
We are more than a studio, more than architects, more than designers, we are a movement – a movement that creates the right solutions that perform beyond expectation, beyond definition. As experts in an array of architectural types, we have focused our practice on community enhancement, specialty projects, and sports facility design. Although we are a small firm, a key differentiation between Pendulum and large firms is the fact that when you select Pendulum you get dedicated and direct involvement of the principal owner of the firm. Our principal owner is a “working principal” so the high expectations we have outlined for our staff is the same expectation of our principal as it relates all aspects of project delivery including sketching, drafting, 3D modeling, project documentation, and exhibiting an overall knowledge of advanced industry technology and market trends.
