Based in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, our firm approaches remodeling or renovations, additions, and new home design with a focus on the needs and ideas of each client. Whether respecting the beautiful, traditional details of a Western Reserve Chagrin Falls Village house; creatively updating a more modern or contemporary structure; working with the flowing lines of a French Country house; or combining innovative floor plans with Arts-and-Crafts appearance for a dynamic, fresh design, we constantly strive for the highest quality in our creative solutions and construction detailing.
The work of architect George Clemens, A.I.A, is carefully based on context and respects the craft of building. Though a Cleveland native and graduate of Heights High school in 1981, he has lived on both coasts after attending Williams College (B Arts ’86). George brings architectural training from Yale University (M Arch ’93) and a design background drawing on experience from top architectural firms in New Haven, San Francisco, and Cleveland. He has built as well as designed houses since the early 1980s.
Prior to joining George Clemens Architecture in January, Brian worked for nearly 20 years on a variety of multi-family housing and townhouse projects throughout Northeast Ohio. From market-rate apartments to private townhouses, new construction, existing construction and a warehouse conversion, Brian managed teams of architects, engineers and contractors to bring the clients’ vision to life. Brian currently resides in Avon Lake with his wife, two children and a dog that barks way too much.
Peter joined the George Clemens team in April 2016. Prior to receiving his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from KSU in 2014, Peter freelanced in graphic design since 2006 granting him a significant interest in all things visual. This interest was fully understood when this focus on graphic design was implemented into the architectural design development process. The transition of an idea from paper to digital fabrication has always been a fascinating process to him, one that truly exemplifies how the converging of baffling amounts of architectural and sociological information can translate into a harmonic set of drawings (and eventually a beautiful building).
Heather was excited to join the George Clemens team in the summer of 2018. She completed her undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University and received a Masters of Architecture at the Boston Architecture College. She remained in the Boston area with her family for more than 15 years where she focused on residential architecture and the challenges of an urban environment. Heather is excited to bring both her New England influence and residential experiences back to her native state of Ohio. She is passionate about creating traditional architecture that provides functional yet beautiful space for modern day living.
