Architectural Design Studio, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Burton Perdue.  With over 35 years experience in the practice of architecture, our focus is on creating building environments and communities that enhance, nurture and uplift the human spirit.  One dominant philosophy permeates our work; a commitment to good stewardship of the environment. Good stewardship requires that as architects we continually seek better methodologies, new paradigms and constantly push the envelope in an effort to deliver buildings and communities that represent thoughtful and creative solutions for our clients. Design excellence.  Good design is good business, both for us and for our clients.

We are fortunate to work in the picturesque hills of Brown County, Indiana.  This beautiful natural environment provides inspiration for our work today, just as it provided inspiration for a group of expressionist artists at the turn of the century. We are committed to improving the quality of life of ordinary citizens and bringing the value of good design to the residents of this and other communities.

ADS has developed an architectural language that reflects an understanding and exploration of a building’s impact on its environment and the context into which it is placed.  Not limited to any particular architectural style, we prefer to use the very diverse vocabulary of architecture in pursuit of producing buildings, homes and communities that respond to the site and the clients programmatic needs.

It is this search for an architecture appropriate to both the client and site that drives the design process. Employing interactive design techniques that allow the client to better visualize the design, brings the building users into the design process, enriching the resulting architecture by their involvement.
