About Us

At Cropley McGhee Architects, we hold that “architecture” is more than building; it is a thoughtful response to the needs, aspirations, and sensitivities of the individual client.¬† Accordingly, the firm seeks to involve the client actively in the planning and design process; thereby, ensuring that each project remains true to its particular character. We will not, and do not desire to limit or remove the participation of the client’s involvement in this effort. This team approach allows for utilizing the special expertise of each member¬† to achieve a true state-of-the-art design solution.

Our team believes that good architecture comes in many forms and styles. Drawing on the collective education and professional experience of its staff enables the work produced to be coversant with the community as a whole, and not a mere reflection of current architectural fashions. This attempt to carry on traditions and make them relevant to our present times in terms of function, aesthetics, and popular acceptance marks an integral feature of our firm. At Cropley McGhee Architects, each project is approached as a unique problem demanding well-informed, unique responses.

Cropley McGhee Architects is adept at modern, new construction however we also embrace the ongoing use, development, and re-purposing of existing and historic structures. We have extensive experience working with historic and architectural review boards in Fredereicksburg, Stafford, and Spotsylvania and have a great track record in working with these review boards to gain successful approval for our designs.
