Firm Profile

The firm of Frewen Architects, Inc. was established in 1982 by Cynthia Frewen-Wuellner, FAIA, in Kansas City, Missouri.  Initial projects were primarily industrial and commercial buildings.  Today the firms' project experience has expanded to include both new and remodeled residential, institutional, commercial, and industrial projects. The construction budgets have ranged from $50,000 to over $22 million on projects throughout Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Florida, Montana and New York. 

During our sixteen years in business, Frewen Architects has consistently worked on a wide variety of project types ranging from single family housing to large scale public projects. From these, we have learned to be responsive to the owner's project specific elements such as functional requirements, existing conditions, timetables, construction methodologies, and budget constraints.  Frewen Architects has an exemplary record in completing projects on time and has completed all programmed projects within budgetary requirements.

Repeat Clients
A testimony to the quality of Frewen Architects service is demonstrated by repeat work from both public and private clients, such as the City of Kansas City, Missouri, American Multi-Cinema, Inc., Hallmark, the Kansas City, Missouri School District, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  We believe that by working closely with the client and the consultants, our projects have benefited through their participation and team ideas.

Staff
Frewen Architects' staff includes architects, planners, interior designers, computer specialists, and administrative personnel. CAD workstations with the latest in AutoCAD software facilitate production efficiency, and increase quality control and coordination throughout the project both internally and with our consulting team.

Business Perspective
Our philosophy is based on three major points:

1.  Participatory communications with our clients.
2.  Quality design that is responsive to environmental issues.
3.  Professional service on time and on budget. 

This holistic approach to our clients and their specific needs assures a positive experience and successful project. Utilization of creativity workshops and group charettes provide an interactive setting for broad participation from all team members.
