Our Philosophy

Faure Halvorsen Architects was established in 1982 and acquired by partners and principal architects, Matthew Faure and Kipp Halvorsen, in 1997. Headquartered in Bozeman, Montana, FHA is licensed to practice in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Texas and is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).

Faure Halvorsen Architects is a full service architectural firm that provides architecture, consulting, engineering, land planning, and interior design services throughout the Western United States. Our team has extensive experience in commercial, public, educational, multi-family residential, single-family residential and land planning projects.

Our firm's philosophy is simple. Hard work and dedication to a project produces the desired results. We utilize the latest technologies to design, schedule, and coordinate our projects but we have learned that our passion and work ethic is still the key to success. Along with these, teamwork has been crucial to the realization of all of our projects. Our collaboration with those involved in each project has resulted in products that exceed client expectations. The knowledge gained from each discipline improves our overall design abilities.

As well as working in many different disciplines of architecture, our firm also works with a range of clients - individuals, developers, corporations, and the State of Montana. Because of this range, our firm is familiar with and well versed in the different processes and regulations that vary throughout projects based on the needs of the client.

Faure Halvorsen also recognizes the importance of budgets and project schedules. We track our budgets and update estimates continually throughout the design process. This allows us to keep our clients informed should any major time or budget issues arise. We have worked with large companies to meet tight deadlines with budgetary constraints in the past and have extensive experience with the design and construction administration of many unique projects throughout the U.S.

Teamwork and commitment are the bottom line for FHA, and they are philosophies that we have built our firm upon. We commit all of our talent, energy and passion to current projects. Collaboration drives our design team which leads to the successfulness of projects. From start to finish, we ensure that client expectations are not just met, but exceeded.
