Stephen Perry Smith Architects is one of the leading firms in the state of Wisconsin in LEED activism. As the first LEED certified pilot core-and-shell building in Wisconsin, and one of the first ten in the nation, Liberty 245 Plaza was pioneered by SPSA.
With a LEED gold certified project, five LEED silver certified projects, SPSA continues to set an example of economical and environmentally friendly design as they pave the way into the next generation of architecture.Our team recognizes the pressingimportance on the future and continues to educate clients on the benefits of LEED design. We attempt to implement design elements that will minimize environmental impact while improving the work place and saving you money.
We design interior spaces based upon the needs of clients and not our egos. Good design goes beyond the latest fad and we endeavor to mitigate the built-in obsolescence of products and colors. We seek to design a space that appeals to all age groups. One that is “hip” but not necessarily “hip-hop” by exercising good taste while planning the space to meet both the functional and aesthetic needs of the users. We can both lead and listen
while striving to solve the proximity relationship puzzle through a collaborative team process that engages and empowers each stakeholder in the ultimate solution.
The restoration of a building or remodeling of a tenant space is truly Recycling at its finest. To the degree possible, we work to preserve where it makes sense from a cost efficiency standpoint but at times it does make sense to wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Breathing new life into a building or tenant space brings us great satisfaction. We pride ourselves on the ability to create value with good design that addresses both the functional needs of the users but also the financial needs of the Owners and Managers.
