Friendly chats between colleagues in virtual mode. Voracious meeting notes accompanied with graceful sketches. Keen and effective communications with clients. Sparkflight Studios is open for business and committed to our community and team.

As architects, we are always looking for tools to streamline the design process and communicate our ideas. In our current situation, we’ve turned to cyberspace for real-time client feedback where we can share three-dimensional models and create annotated sketch overlays. Look for future posts on our digital toolkit and unique design capabilities. 

In no uncertain terms, the pandemic has changed the way we conduct business. It has also had a profound impact on our physical environment and public health. At Sparkflight Studios, we are able to consult and create solutions for evolving business practices in your restaurant or office space. Our expertise in space planning is a useful tool to reevaluate floor plans through an epidemiological lens for safety measures like social distancing. As an office, we continue to uphold safety protocols such as consulting remotely and limiting field visits for projects in construction.

  • We respectfully request that visitors to the Sparkflight Studios office wear masks.
  • Please address all deliveries to 1489 W Warm Springs Rd, Ste 110 Henderson, NV 89014. The available window for in-person drop-off is M-F, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm.

With warm wishes for health and wellbeing.

The National Memorial to Peace and Justice is sited on six acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama and is the first national memorial to victims of lynching in the US. The structure suspends eight hundred Corten steel monuments to represent the counties in the United States where racial terror lynchings took place, each engraved with the names of its victims.

Please visit the Equal Justice Initiative to learn more about the project and EJI's efforts, as Bryan Stevenson says, "to confront the truth of our past."
