Cronk Duch Architecture, founded in 1997, is a design-focused architecture firm committed to the creation of buildings and urban places. We have completed over 250 projects throughout the United States and the Caribbean. We operate design studios in Jacksonville, Palm Beach, and St. Augustine Florida, as the creative foundation for all our projects. We are a team of talented and experienced architects, designers and dreamers.

Cronk Duch started as a partner-led design firm and continues to this day with partner participation throughout the creative and drawing process of every project. This accountability along with over fifteen years of in-house construction services and acquired technical knowledge, assure a uniquely skilled and focused approach to design from early creative sketches through the craft of the building's physical form. The firm’s active on-site participation during the construction process assures the original design intent is manifested in a structure of craftsmanship, quality, and value. We offer a glimpse of our residential, boutique commercial/hospitality, interior architecture and planning in our Portfolio.

Design Approach

The firm's design approach is grounded in a philosophy that reflects a respect for history, theory and the traditional building arts. Architecture created out of classical principles and vernacular traditions, while responding to local site qualities and the innovations of our time, become both reflective and contemporary.
