Welcome to Our New Website!

PIVOT Architecture’s website has a new look and we’re excited about it!

We’ve tried to bring a fresh new approach to highlight our Projects and give you a glimpse of the People who bring those projects to life. The new site is fully custom and uses big, bold photos and is mobile friendly. The Contact page features sketches by retired Principal Eric Gunderson loosely inspired by the EAMS film “Powers of Ten” by notable designers Charles and Ray Eames.

Give the new site a spin, kick the tires, and check out some of the features. Many people really liked our old site, but frankly it just couldn’t keep up with the changing technology.

We’ve worked long and hard to bring a fresh new style and we hope you like what you see. Thanks for visiting and check back again and again. We’re just getting started!
