Quick decision making just prior to the 2020 shutdown landed Sylvaleur Architecture's founder and CEO, Stephanie White, in Columbus, Ohio. After getting settled over the past year and a half, Sylvaleur is excited to call Columbus home. "We put health and well-being first to yield a balance of work and life," Stephanie says. "The community here is so welcoming, and the park system with natural amenities woven throughout the city is outstanding."

The metropolitan area is exploding with new construction. Downtown Columbus sits at the convergence of 2 major rivers. Very walkable, it has everything a city dweller seeks. Its neighbor, The Ohio State, boasts a lively campus adding to the excitement. Suburban towns surround the densely packed buildings, offering community hubs on a smaller scale. And just beyond that, the rolling hills of rural America provide nourishing crops for countless famers markets. Whether you're restoring a historic townhome in German Village, or building a custom farmhouse in the countryside, Sylvaleur is happy to help.
