is an architectural firm based in Richmond, Virginia specializing in residential, commercial and small scale institutional projects. With over 30 years of commitment to ecologically mindful design and nearly 10 years of experience in residential design-build, architect Patrick Farley’s design approach entails a site and client-responsive process that ensures a sensitive building solution that is unique to its place. At Sunflower Studio, we take environmental and social consciousness to deeper level through biophilic design to ensure that our buildings, places and landscapes elevate and enhance the human experience and sense of connection with the natural world.
We are seasoned early adopters within the green building movement and thus bring a broad spectrum of experience to the process of creating buildings and landscapes designed to reduce environmental and human health impacts.
The benefits of strengthening the innate human-nature connection are becoming increasingly well-known, so we are deeply committed to creating places that elevate and enhance our clients' health, well-being and productivity.
As a namesake of perhaps the most popular of the "heliotropic" plants, we have long been following the sun and realizing its power to enhance the environmental and economic performance of our built environment.
