“My name is Charles Hendricks and I am an architect, dad, and husband living in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. I design projects of all types and styles (residential, multi-family, office, commercial, industrial, new construction, renovation, modern, traditional, contemporary) for a variety of clients. There is no project too small or too large, if you value design, I am thrilled to help.
In 2008, my firm was named “best green designers” by Virginia Sustainable Building Network through our work on sustainable, LEED Certified, EarthCraftCertified, and Energy Star projects in the residential, commercial, and industrial segments. We have been fortunate over the last 16 years, that I have been with the firm, to have clients that wanted to create buildings, businesses, and homes that are healthy, energy-efficient, and durable.”
