Through the romance of river houseboats, the fast pace of commercial and industrial tenant spaces, the precision of healthcare programming, the luxury of hotel renovations, and the inexpressible comfort of custom homes, Integrate is at core a coming together of ideas between architects and clients. Each design emerges unique; each project is one-of-a-kind. From consult to concrete, the design process is a collaboration requiring effective communication and paying off in authenticity of form. With residential, industrial, hospitality, and healthcare planning and design services, Integrate Architecture & Planning is on the leading edge of contemporary design, providing exceptional client service and custom architectural solutions.

In 2016 Integrate renovated a large tenant space in the historic Dupey Building in the Kenton neighborhood. The space had been long neglected, with most of the storefront windows boarded up for decades. This project brought back to life a central corner of the streetscape in Historic Kenton. Integrate is honored to share space in the building with the best neighbors around: Mantel, Posies Cafe, and Blue Ox Tattoo.
