Andrew Thomas Architect pllc was founded to provide excellence in architectural design. The firm focuses on fitting the building to meet the needs of our clients. Our work seeks to embrace its environment. It responds to its users, its context of place and it seeks to minimize the impact of its own footprint. Integral to our work is the vernacular context, the landscape and urban surrounds, the measured use of material and energy resources and indoor environmental quality. Our best hope is to promote and express the particular liveliness of those who inhabit our spaces!
Our work, spanning from institutional to residential projects, has targeted that point which both fulfills the needs of our clients and promotes stewardship of the larger environment. We integrate our client’s needs with attention to space, light, health, resources, materials, the natural world, connectivity and enjoyment. Andrew Thomas Architect pllc provides services to a wide range of clients from its location in historic Charlottesville, Virginia. The firm is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
The firm is led by architect Andrew “Andy” Thomas, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP. Andy’s work has always considered the place—contexts including the vernacular and regional, urban, natural and, especially, the served community– paramount in informing architectural design. His hope is that the architecture, while serving the immediate needs, also brings to light some of the joy that is found in those places.
