We’re happy to help educate.

Just because we can get excited about the technical details of how your project comes together, doesn’t mean we can't explain it in a way that makes sense to you. We’re here to help: we hope you always feel comfortable asking questions.

Clear communication is important to us.

We understand how important your project is to you, and no one wants to be in the dark with so much invested. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way so you can relax knowing you’re in good hands.

And, we want to work with you.

At Board & Vellum, you don’t need to worry: from small projects to large, from the highly technical, to the pure look & feel of your space, we’ve got your best interests at heart. Happy clients are why we get up in the morning, and we’d love hear what you’ve got in mind.


Offering integrated services leads to better design.

We’ve got the bases covered: our studios offer architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. Whether you need help in just one area, or all three, we will customize a team to suit your needs. Plus, simply having a multi-disciplinary office means our projects are critiqued from varied perspectives, resulting in better, more-considered projects. Not only does having in-house integrated services lead to better design, it helps your project move more smoothly from great idea to great finished product.

What do you want to build?

Our services span architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture — from residential to commercial, large or small.


We love working on a variety of project types and scales.

We get excited tackling complex and precisely-detailed projects, large and small. Whether it‘s a small kitchen remodel or a brand new custom home, a hot new restaurant or a coworking space, a new multifamily building, or even a cabin in the woods — we would love to hear about what you have in mind for your next project.

What type of projects do we take on?

We welcome you to explore our integrated portfolio, spanning a spectrum of services, including architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture.
