    Harrisburg Architects Spreads its Geographic Wings

    Allison Ong Shreffler has re-launched her architectural prowess in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where from her New York Metropolitan roots, has re-sprouted.
    Coupled with many facets affecting the design and building business, Ong-Shreffler has studied the economy, demographics, and cultural nuances in order to adapt to the new surroundings. Harrisburg is not New York City, nor is it supposed to be. With a firm understanding of structure and design, the Allison Ong Shreffler Architect firm has incorporated a mix of style and history into her building schemes.
    The various aspects of color, shapes, space, and property, not to mention texture, are contributing factors that culminate into the mind set of an architect’s palette for creativity. With such a drastic transition from New York-New Jersey, where Ong-Shreffler was raised, she knew that moving to Harrisburg would be a big change. With an understanding of the big urban city feel and a more country sense such as Harrisburg, the blends have worked in quite well with an audience that respects the vision and foresight of a big city talent adaptive to new surroundings.
    Every project poses to be a unique canvas where Ong-Shreffler explores her blend of old and new with clean finishes to give each project a uniqueness with respect to space, color, and dynamics that sports its own cultural flair. This architectural firm is not limited to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania since there are still many projects that are requested from the New Jersey and New York areas from its past.
    With technological advances, Ong-Shreffler capitalizes on the web based advertising mediums in order to broaden her geographical reach. With Skype, Google Hangout, and Dropbox, distance has never been more affordable. Facilitation of photos and videos where clients and contractors can experience all aspects of a prospective project in the comfort of their homes, proposals and communication can be quite easy. In addition, contractor interviews can be given that personal touch where eye contact during conversations can still be captured where trust is worth every penny.
    The creativity of an architect is more art than it is science, however science still plays a vital role where structure and building knowledge is central to every project. Weight and balance with trusses and beams and columns and studs all play that part of keeping a home or building in proper functioning order. There are many parts of a building structure that are never seen but must be present in order to be built. The blends between the design and building know how bridge the gap that the architect fills between designers and building contractors.
