Client-based beyond the building design



Community is the secret ingredient in sustainability. It’s the new anchor tenant. To create fun, safe, and successful communities, neighbors need to have a thoughtful balance of privacy and opportunities for casual interaction. Caddis has been designing successful cohousing communities, both nationally and internationally, for more than a decade.


Sustainability is something we consider each step of the way on every project we do. Because it’s integral to our process, we are able to help our clients make smart choices from the beginning. All of our projects target an energy budget whether it’s cost neutrality, LEED, net-zero energy, carbon neutral, passive house, or living building certified. We have the certifications to prove it.  


We differentiate ourselves from other resort and development planners by taking our knowledge of community design and sustainability into the mountains. This helps our clients tackle current issues such as reducing water and energy usage. On top of that, we offer a full range of resort development services. We excel at master planning, skier and guest service building, transit and parking development, affordable workforce housing, maintenance and service facilities, and complex approvals processes.


From high-end resort condos to affordable housing and co-ops, Caddis has experience with every facet of multifamily housing, both locally and internationally. Each housing type informs the other and helps make our designs even stronger. From inception through permitting, we can help with any stage of the project, make the most of any location, and work with almost any budget.


From master planning for higher education clients to charter school expansion and renovations, we find the field of education to be very rewarding, and our clients love our ability to successfully engage the community, listen to all inputs, and help reach broad consensus.


We truly enjoy going through the process of building a custom home with our clients. The personalities, goals, and dreams of our clients are powerful sources of inspiration. From large homes and renovations to pop-tops and tiny homes, we enjoy the challenge of creating something unique that fits our clients’ needs perfectly.


Whether it’s a new branded flagship store, tenant finish, or a new headquarters building, Caddis specializes in cutting through the red tape and helping our clients complete their projects on time and on budget so that they can focus on getting back to work.


Creating delightful, strong, and resilient communities starts from the first stages of the planning and development process. The benefits of this process include everything from lower initial costs and lower environmental impacts to higher resale and property values down the road.


"We could not have found anyone locally with Caddis's vision and understanding of cohousing. I have found that the nuances of this 'project' go much deeper than building design."

− Chris Corby, Germantown Commons Cohousing, Nashville, TN

"Caddis is client-driven and understands budget constraints. At the same time, Caddis is willing to advocate for design elements that they believe are critical to the design solution and find ways of making them happen without compromising the budget."

− Laura Sheinbaum, Senior Asset Project Manager, Boulder Housing Partners, Boulder, CO

"Bryan and Caddis have proven to be people who invest in us as we invest in them, a synergy that we have grown to value and appreciate."

− Todd Kilburn, CFO, Naropa University, Boulder, CO

"The architectural designs that Caddis develops are consistently cutting edge in terms of site sustainability, energy use, and community design concept while carefully respecting the community and neighborhood context for each individual project."

− Michael Barille, Owner and Director, PlanWorks Design, Park City, UT
