The driving force behind 42° North’s boutique experience is the owner and principal Ryan La Haie. Like most people who develop a unique skill into a career, Ryan knew from a very young age he loved architecture; its forms, materials, and craftsmanship.
“When we decided to build our home, we were pretty naive to the process. We are blessed to have met Ryan and 42° North to help educate us on the process, and point out specific things we never thought of. Ryan has been the single most important asset in our home-build process – not only designing us a house we absolutely love, but also looking out for our best interests when dealing with other parties, such as builders, vendors, etc. The integrity that the guys at 42° North have is rare, and something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. They are swift to hold your hand through the process, and the design work is top-notch. Ryan’s communication is also amazing, making the process with him stress-free and easy going. 42º North is the only architecture firm we will ever recommend and use should we decide to build again. We’re happy to take a friendship out of this year-long process as well, and that is something that you can never put a price on.”
