Firm of the Year


The Palm Beach Chapter of the American Institute of Architects awarded Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects +Planners, Inc. with the 2013 Firm of the Year Award. This award recognizes outstanding achievement, for a period of over ten years, in design, community services, education, and service to the profession and the AIA by an architectural firm. Architectural Design is often thought of by people outside of the profession as a solitary endeavor. However, we have found that the most successful, and rewarding efforts have come from collaboration, whether it be from within the office, or those processes that involve the whole project team.


Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects + Planners, Inc. encourages our employees to volunteer their time and talents to help our community. As Architects, we view community involvement as a way to achieve change and make a difference in the lives of those in our neighborhoods. Among the ways our firm has been servicing our community have been by serving on the board of a local organization, or by lecturing about architecture at a local high school and by acting as sponsor to events of a Foundation of our choice.
