Purple Cherry Architects creates luxurious residences across the United States. Whether traditional or contemporary, a multi-generational estate or a weekend getaway, the firm is guided by a desire to conceive exceptional homes. Each commission—composed with intelligence, sensitivity, and experience—becomes the backdrop for indelible family memories.
Founding principal, Cathy Purple Cherry, and her company are devoted to their clients, guiding them though every step of the design process. Passionate about their work, the team considers not only physical forms but the emotional connections clients will have with their homes and the spaces within them. Active listening fuels the firm’s creative talent to achieve environments that are transcendently beautiful, comfortable, and serene. Purple Cherry’s personal approach is matched with comprehensive architectural and interior design services that result in striking and unique homes.
The design of exceptional homes—from 3,000 square-feet to 40,000 square-feet and everything in between—requires thorough understanding of each client’s needs and desires. Our design team appreciates that individual aspirations are shaped by a lifetime of experiences. We encourage our clients to create virtual idea boards to help us capture preferences and inspiration.
Equally important to establishing the vision are site and context. We have extensive experience in designing for waterfront and mountain properties and understand how to utilize the sun’s path, views and wind to determine proper siting and maximize design. Moreover, with LEED accredited professionals, we have a keen interest and ability to integrate sustainable strategies into the design of clients’ homes at their request.
In support of the company’s residential architecture, the Purple Cherry Interior Design Studio provides seamlessly coordinated interior architecture and décor. Finishes, wall coverings, and color selections; custom millwork, including kitchen cabinetry, coffered ceilings and built-in bookcases; flooring; lighting and plumbing fixtures; selection of furniture, upholstery, accessories, and window coverings; and curation and placement of artwork may be integrated into the scope of work as desired by the client.
