Buildings have to make sense in a variety of ways: structurally, functionally, mechanically, environmentally…

The disciplines that contribute to success in these areas are critical and often under-appreciated, but it’s in the aesthetic sense that buildings most directly move and inspire us.

The sweep of a roofline or the floating grace of a glass wall. A boldness of line or an innovative use of materials.

Exceptional architectural design bridges all these areas of functionality. It seamlessly blends the utilitarian with the poetic, the required with the desired.

Glos associates takes pride in their architectural design.


We’ve been designing strong, sustainable buildings this way, and sustain strong client relationships, since 1966. That is the ongoing Glos story.
