Blochberger Design L.L.C. was founded by Jim Blochberger in 2004 as a unique architectural company specializing in the design of custom residential projects. Personalized service to clients is the primary focus of the company. This personalized service extends to each phase of the project including the design process, construction documentation, and project management of each residence. Blochberger Design’s fundamental principles include:

•  Dedication to quality and excellence in both design and project management of each project.

•  Mutual respect and confidence between the client, project consultants, and the architect.

• Bringing value to each project by going beyond what is required.

• Maintaining integrity in all aspects of the project.

•  Earning the trust and respect of each client.

As the architect, I am committed to these principles on each project.

As president and founder of Blochberger Design, I am responsible for the design quality, project management, and client contact for each project. I have the knowledge and experience required for the complexities of a custom home. I know that I can support my clients in creating a home which will not only include the functional requirements they desire, but also have the character that they are looking for. Most of my projects are traditionally based architecture with an emphasis on authenticity, detail and scale. I strongly believe that the success of any project is derived from the attention to detail in every phase of the project, from the design of the floor plan and elevations to the selection of the materials and finishes. The construction documents prepared by Blochberger Design reflect this attention to detail. The construction documents are well-coordinated, complete sets that utilize the latest in computer aided design and drafting (CADD). I am currently a licensed architect in the state of Arizona, as well as being an N.C.A.R.B. Registered Architect.
