Q: What does the semicolon stand for in Archuity;?
A. In grammar, a sentence does not end in a semicolon. It keeps going. The semicolon is a symbol for people who have been affected by suicide in one way or another. It means ‘we’re not going to end it.’ For my company, it means that when we give you the plans, we don’t end things there. We are the architects for the duration of the construction and beyond.
Q: What do you mean by evidence-based design?
A: We’re taking ideas from research. Bipolar patients who had sunlight coming into their rooms recovered more quickly and were released sooner than bipolar patients that had very little sunlight in their rooms. Architects aren’t doing their jobs if they’re not getting sunlight to the patients. We use this idea for homes, restaurants and all types of buildings.

Q: How does architecture in Franklin differ from other places?
A: Franklin has very much preserved a historic charm more than probably anyplace in Tennessee. As far as architectural character, there’s just more history preserved here all in the same place than the rest of the South.
