Who we are

We are an architectural consultancy; design doesn’t begin until we thoroughly understand your goals. We gain this understanding by asking intelligent questions that get to the heart of the project, and we achieve your goals by applying our expertise to provide you with solutions.

What we do

We see in ways others can’t. We visualize space where none exists. We think in 3-dimensions and sometimes even in four. We also listen, question, anticipate, investigate, analyze, guide, suggest, and solve.

For whom

We understand clients who have clients; developers who have tenants, healthcare providers that serve patients, districts that educate their communities, and organizations that provide people services.Many of our clients do multiple projects with the same construction team. We make it a priority to understand a client’s operations and how we can best function as part of their building team.


We help our clients do what they do – better. We help them teach children eruditely, provide services effectively, distribute goods efficiently, practice medicine expertly, and promote exercise energetically. We help them lease their properties, grow their businesses, and fulfill their missions.



The firm was founded by Terry E. Beilharz and Richard Pastor, with offices in downtown Defiance, Ohio, offering Architecture and Landscape Architecture services.


The firm incorporated and moved to its present location on the second floor of the historic building at First and Perry Streets.


Following Richard Pastor’s retirement, the firm was renamed and office space expanded. In 2003, a new affiliation was formed with ATA Beilharz Architects in Cincinnati.
