Our Vision, Mission + Values



Solving Architectural Challenges with World-class Design

At AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design, we approach architecture differently. For us, each architectural project is an opportunity to solve real-world challenges with a unique, inspiring, and world-class design. We practice with the belief that architecture is more than simply a pragmatic solution for a space, or the expression of design for the sake of design – we believe timeless architectural solutions are those that provide memorable, inspiring, and connected spaces for those that use them, and functional value for those that own them.


We Passionately Contribute to a Better World, One Project at a Time

Why do we practice architecture? Why is architecture our passion? It’s simple: we want to passionately contribute to the world, one project at a time. At AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design, developing a team culture where each of us are able to approach our work with passion, each bringing unique strengths and experiences, all with the goal of making a positive difference for our partners and the communities we work in, is at the core of our Vision, and our Mission. It’s the “why” we do what we do.
