George Clemens has been designing new homes and additions in Northeast Ohio for over 20 years. Prior to starting his own firm, he worked at top architectural design firms in San Francisco, New Haven and Cleveland. George’s fascination with construction technique is based on early experience framing houses in Denver, Colorado and later during his Yale Architecture School Building Project.
A 1981 graduate of Cleveland Heights High School, George received a liberal arts education at Williams College (B Arts ’86) and studied architecture at Yale University (M Arch ’93)
His inventive approach has resulted in two U.S. Patents for innovative residential construction methods; his Wall System is the foundation for the sustainable Elements of Living™ home design series.
A resident of the Chagrin area for 25 years, he and his wife Ruth have raised two wonderful daughters here and continue to enjoy our beautiful village. A member of the Chagrin Falls Architectural Review Board for the last fourteen years, he also served on the South Russell Board of Zoning Appeals and continues as a consultant for the Chagrin Falls School District Master Planning Committee.
