Not many firms afford you the privilege of working directly with the principal architect and owners.  With Modern Design Architects, our architect and designer are also the stakeholders of our company.  You will have access to them as resources throughout the design process.  Rob Stensland and Kevin McConnell bring fresh vision and focus to each project they approach. With more than 40 years of combined architectural design experience, their proficiency and knowledge are put to work to serve you better.
