NEGRETE & KOLAR ARCHITECTS believes that exceptional quality in building design is best achieved by applying equal effort to all phases of a project, from initial programming to final completion. Design quality control, cost control, and construction administration receive as much attention as issues concerning aesthetics. This holistic approach to project delivery has resulted in an exceptional record of successful projects that respond to the needs of the client and users with beauty, functionality, durability, affordability, and timeliness.
Negrete and Kolar Architects has worked with a full range of project types, ranging from low-income housing to private custom residences, from municipal buildings to high-security government facilities, and from downtown office buildings to small town recreational parks. These projects have ranged in size from very modest buildings, renovations and additions, to large-scale developments.
At our two design offices, we concentrate on projects that demonstrate social consciousness and represent our values and interests. One of the primary focuses at our office is responding to community needs with time-tested, integrated, and durable building methods applied to regionally and environmentally sensitive designs in South and Central Texas. Many of our clients have been municipalities, school districts and agencies for social services in central and south Texas.
Though we have been broadening our focus to practice the full range of architecture, Negrete & Kolar Architects maintains affiliation with early client commitments. While serving private clients, we also provide architectural services predominately to public clients with projects at all levels of government from local to federal, and at all levels of education from primary school to universities and beyond.
David Negrete, AIA and Roger Kolar, AIA have practiced architecture in south and central Texas for over thirty years. The firm operates from two design offices, one in downtown Austin and the other in central Edinburg, part of the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
With their combined experience, Negrete & Kolar possess skills that complement one another. Roger Kolar's special interests are interior design and historic preservation.
