Architecture’s Great Responsibility to Community

If communities were simply held together by lines and boundaries, our work would be simpler. At Selser Schaefer Architects, we understand that people, not proximity, put unity in community.

With each project, we not only explore how people interact with the spaces we create – but also how the spaces invite people to interact with each other. This requires an intimate knowledge of our client’s goals and an appreciation of what draws people together.

When we talk of giving back to the community, we’re acknowledging that communities give good things to us first. Things like belonging, inspiration, opportunity. Design that fosters community is one way all of us at Selser Schaefer Architects “give back.” After all, architecture may be about buildings, but it’s for people.
