About

The originating partnership of J. Crook Associates, Inc. was formed in 1969 with the resulting formation of Archon Corporation in 1980, creating a highly qualified and experienced professional service firm of principals with the collective knowledge and experience of a 50 year history of hospitality and residential design comprised of more than 65,000 housing units.  In 2015 Archon Corporation combined with Gary Wood Architects gaining 40 years of design in educational, institutional, retail and commercial.

 

The ultimate goal of Archon Corporation has been, and will continue to be, the production of professional quality design services to complement the client’s taste, program, and budget requirements.  We are dedicated to meeting your needs effectively and professionally and we offer a level of expertise you’re not likely to find elsewhere.  We encounter tight time schedules on a very frequent basis. The principals in our firm are immediately accessible and directly involved in the execution and control of projects while utilizing support members as necessary.
