About M.G. Leach Architects
Margo Leach Architects and Project Managers is a boutique firm with over twenty years of experience, specializing in the design and construction of elegant new homes.
We are a full service architectural and construction management firm, providing services from project inception through completion of construction.
Now integral with the practice is the use of cutting edge "green" technology and an aim toward houses with net zero energy use.
Our foremost objective is responsiveness to discerning clients who value gracious living and timeless, functional architecture.
