From Our Website

Since being established in 1992, McCaren has spanned architecture, interior design, and accessibility to design inspirationally diverse buildings, spaces, and places. Our holistic approach has seen each project develop from concept to completion for clients in residential, commercial, cultural, and education. As we've grown and developed, we've now moved forward with a new cooperative structure and will soon rebrand as Studio Skein. But we still persistently push for excellence and a different kind of architecture.
