Stan Shelden founded Shelden Architecture in 2002 because he wanted to build a firm where clients are comfortable enough to share their ideas and designers listen, where creative minds work together to find the best solutions, where life and work are fun, and most importantly, where spaces are truly inspired.
Since its founding, we have designed a wide variety of building types, including shopping center and mixed use developments, medical clinics, financial institutions, office buildings, educational facilities, churches, and private residences. Even amidst this diversity of projects, we have made a name for ourselves by our follow-through, high quality results, fresh ideas, and for breathing new life into the landscape of the region through the buildings we design.
Shelden Architecture is a full service architectural firm providing a wide range of services from Pre-Design through Construction. We can oversee our client’s project from initial idea to completion, or we can provide our services à la carte.
Pre-Design Services include land planning and site selection, existing conditions surveys, feasibility studies, budget development, programming, marketing and fundraising packages, building and zoning code review.
Architectural Design Services include schematic design, design development, construction documents (drawings and specifications), interior design, furniture layout and/or selection, signage and graphics.
Project Delivery Services include construction contract bidding and negotiation, contract administration over the construction process.
LEED Services include sustainable design, LEED project administration, feasibility studies and energy modeling.
Renderings and Videos Services include 3-dimensional computer modeling as well as project renderings and table-top models.
We are a team of professional learners, friendly competitors, and practical dreamers, who can take the client through their new building project. We love what we do, and we don’t try to hide it. We study our clients and eagerly engage their participation throughout every phase of the design process. In fact, we fully recognize that our work isn’t about us. We’re here for the client… inspired by the client.
You’ll find the people at Shelden Architecture very empathetic. We have a practiced ability to put ourselves in the shoes of those we design for as well as those who construct our designs. This also makes us uniquely effective advocates for our clients’ objectives. After all it’s their building, not ours.
This quality, along with a demonstrated passion for what we do, enables Shelden Architecture to consistently design buildings we’re proud of. But more importantly, so are our clients.
