COMPANY PROFILE: History of Firm
Daniel Frederick Architects, LLC was established in 1994.
Philosophy of firm.
We are a full service architectural firm offering services ranging from initial design concept sketches through detailed construction documents. Our design expertise also includes master planning and building assessments. Construction administration is a particular strength due to the Principal’s life-long exposure to the construction industry. Currently our work consists of approximately 25% residential and 75% commercial work including successful niches serving municipal, lakefront residential and historic renovation clients. Nearly 90% of our work involves referrals and repeat clients. We have intentionally remained a small-sized firm to assure that the principal is involved in all aspects of each project. We select only those projects that we feel our office is best suited to professionally fulfill our client’s expectations while creating high quality architecture based on sound economic value, sustainable principals, and design excellence.

Traditional Architectureand Historic Preservation
Traditional architecture and historic preservation has been a professional interest of mine since being the subject of my Miami University Master of Architecture thesis study entitled Keeping the Lights, Historic Preservation Among the Lighthouses of the Lake Erie Islands Region. Since, traditional architectural design has developed into a professional practice strength demonstrated by several of the projects listed in this report. Therefore, I would look forward to studying a design solution that meets historic preservation and restoration design goals while providing the latest architectural technology and design efficiency, including handicapped accessibility and sustainability. The Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) is a federally funded program administered by the National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property (NIC). The purpose of the program is to provide funding to undertake an architectural assessment survey involving a preservation architect to identify and describe the problems that affect the preservation of historic buildings. These recommendations are based on the assessor’s knowledge and experience regarding the proper application of accepted historic preservation, restoration, and rehabilitation standards including those outlined by the Secretary of the Interior and recognized by the State of Ohio Historic Preservation Office. I have been recognized as a Federally-approved preservation architect since 1994. Examples of CAP assessments include the following projects:
The Hower House, University of Akron
Milan Historical Museum and Edison’s Birthplace, Milan
Orr Mansion for Logan County Historical Society, Bellefontaine
Merry-Go-Round Museum in Old United States Post Office, Sandusky
Shadybrook House for the Lake County Historical Society, Mentor
Farmington House for the Louisville KY Historic Homes Foundation
Springdale Manor for the University of Tiffin
Wakefield Harborview Home for the Great Lakes Historical Society, Vermilion

Door County Maritime Museum, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
