JENNINGS + SANTA-RITA
After the death of partner Maurice Jennings in 2016, The firm Maurice Jennings + Walter Jennings, PLLC revised its name to Jennings + Santa-Rita, PLLC, thus including the name Lori Yazwinski Santa-Rita, long time member and partner in the firm.
We provide the full range of architectural services consisting of the design, design development, and services during construction for all types of projects, especially residences and chapels. We feel that the architect must have a hands-on role in the implementation of a design and that on-site involvement is a necessity. Our office's small size allows a carefully controlled environment for design and project development. Jennings + Santa-Rita Architects, PLLC uphold the principles of Organic Architecture. These principles include a harmony between the building and its natural surroundings, a close relationship of the individual elements of a building to each other, a generous use of natural light, and the honest expression of materials.
