COAR Design Group
Architecture that enhances quality of life.
COAR is an abbreviation of the term: COmmunity ARchitects. Community is at the heart of everything we do and every project we complete. Communities can be small or large but they’re never singular. They tend to be layered, complex, and diverse. More importantly, they reflect the groups of individuals that are integrated into each and every project: The end users, stakeholders, patrons, partners, designers, builders, and residents. At COAR Design Group, we create spaces that bring people together and serve the community.
