About us

VVC Design has developed the essential skills and techniques necessary for providing environmentally and fiscally responsible architecture for our clients. We listen, bring passion, quality and a commitment to enriching lives and building community.

Background & Philosophy

VVC Design was established in 1986 by Vince Catalano, Registered Architect. For more than 25 years our mission has been to provide premium architectural and design services.

VVC Design’s primary goal is to assist our clients in helping them become successful in their business or new location. We believe that providing years of technical and design expertise, VVC Design can help avoid needless expenses and bring projects to completion on budget and on schedule. The earlier we are involved with the project, the better foundation can be laid for success.

Why Us

VVC Design believes that prior to purchasing a property or signing a lease, that the right foundation needs to be in place. It is our experience that our involvement early on can save you costly problems in the design phase of the project. We want you to have a clear understanding of utility needs, permit fees and code requirements early in the process. This helps you evaluate your budget and timeline so your project can be successful.

Next is the creative process in which we apply our problem solving skills, technical knowledge and design ability to create living environments that enhance everyday life using spatial quality and simple materials.

The final phase is to work with your contractor to assist them in providing a final product that is visually pleasing and structurally sound. We believe that having experience with hundreds of projects allows us to work with your contractor in a way that avoids costly errors.

25+ Years

Our history as an architectural and design firm has enabled VVC Design to develop and enhance essential skills and techniques necessary for providing cost effective and efficient services for our clients. From our insights and relationships with City, County and Private agencies, it has enhanced our progressive approach to design and cost control in building and tenant improvement design. VVC Design has been masterfully shaped by the industry that we serve.

1000+ Projects

VVC Design integrates unique processes with evidence-based design strategies that enhance both client vision and specific environmental conditions. We believe an interdisciplinary, rigorous, and adaptable approach is crucial to the manifestation of design and definitive architecture.

Our Services

We are a full service architecture and design firm. Our team consists of our architectural staff plus consulting engineers that have many years of professional experience and licensing. We work closely with the different jurisdictions and have an excellent working relationship with them.
