About Us

In 1989, architect Bruce Taylor, AIA, founded Summit Design in Park City, Utah. Since, Summit Design has developed a reputation for creating unique architectural design solutions specific to the client and to the setting.

Summit Design’s residential architecture ranges from luxury mountainside ski-in, ski-out designs to subsidized housing and small living communities. These designs seek to incorporate principles from the “Not-So-Big” housing movement, evident in the carefully planned functional and multi-use spaces scaled for the daily pleasures of life.

The designs honor the site and conform to the cycles of nature in their passive solar orientation; attention to prevailing winds; window sizing and placement for views, privacy, light and air circulation; placement of outdoor living spaces; and landscaping for the benefit of framing views both of the residence and from the residence.

Summit Design embraces the principles of sustainability and green building especially through the use of passive solar design, selection of sustainable and local materials, and energy efficiency. The designs demonstrate the compatibility of original architectural design with environmentally sound principles.

The Summit Design portfolio includes:
..... • Traditional residential

..... • Resort residential
..... • Restaurants
