Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Gregory K. Wall AIA PA focuses on pragmatic solutions to every architectural challenge presented. Our designs are both appropriate to the environment as well as to the context of the project. Because most of our projects are singular and custom, our company specializes in addressing the special needs of each client. We also follow green building principles which include multiple levels of sustainability in our solutions including water conservation, energy conservation, and the prevention of toxic off-gassing within our structures. Gregory K. Wall AIA is a LEED professional and encourages the certification of projects either as LEED or by the Florida Green Building Council (FGBC).

History

My firm was established in 1984 as a boutique architectural design firm specializing in contemporary custom design. My first building, The Atriums, was featured as the cover story in Florida Architect Magazine with additional exposure in Design South and local newspapers. After many successful projects around the Sarasota area, we branched out nationally and became involved with many national design-build projects including the Armani A/X project at Lennox Square in Atlanta. We also designed and built projects in Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida which included retail clients Neiman Marcus, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama, and Liz Claiborne. In 2000, we again focused on more regional work including the $70 million Hacienda del Mar in Placida and the LEED Platinum certified Milos Residence on Lido Key. We have more recently completed the Marina Jack renovation on Sarasota's waterfront and are currently working on several exciting residential projects.

About Greg

Greg earned a BEDA from N.C. State's School of Design in 1978 and earned a Master of Arts in Architecture in 1982 from the University of Florida. He immediately began his internship at Seibert Architects, a highly regarded firm in Sarasota steeped in the traditions of the Sarasota School. Upon receiving his license in 1984, he opened his own firm and worked on many custom designs including the aforementioned "The Atriums" located at the Sarasota Bradenton Airport. After several years traveling the country designing and building retail outlets for a variety of clients, he once again focused on regional architecture with offices in Tampa and Sarasota and a production office in Bogota, Colombia. He has now combined all three offices and has successfully completed a variety of projects including Tommy Bahama, Starbucks, Gecko's, Marina Jack, Crab and Fin, and Smacks as well as residential projects including Hacienda del Mar, Milos, Vinson, and other high level custom buildings.
