Faleide Architects creates enduring spaces that blend tradition and progress, reflecting rigorous education in architectural history and theory and nearly 30 years of wide-ranging office and field experience. Because Ron first began practicing in Colorado in 1979, clients also benefit from his thorough understanding of the local construction industry.

Founded in 1995, Faleide Architects works in collaboration with Carsten Roth Architekt (Hamburg, Germany). The partnership grew out of a long-standing personal and professional relationship between Ron Faleide and Carsten Roth, also an award-winning architect. Together, they are committed to fulfilling the potential of design to create transformative experiences. The two offices bring a depth of experience and a broad range of skills to every client, including extensive experience in carpentry, electrical systems, plumbing and finish work, computer graphics, environmental and sustainable design.

Balancing his knowledge of architectural history and theory, Ron has nearly 30 years of design experience, including experience in these area: site analysis, schematic design, design development, environmental and sustainable design, construction document services, bidding and negotiation, construction contract administration, and architectural photography.
