"Everything that rises must converge." Flannery O'Connor

At Convergence Design, we desire to improve the quality of the built environment through excellent architecture, great design and sound planning.

Convergence Design is about bringing work, family and community together into a seamless whole. It’s about connecting people in every aspect of their lives, and bringing them together in positive spaces. Convergence Design values people more than design awards and values the communities where buildings exist as much as the buildings themselves. We’re about finding design solutions that are as right for a particular place as they are for a particular time.

Welcome to Convergence Design.

Highly recommended. read more...
Humor linked to creativity—03/24/2014
