VIRALINE Architecture LLP is a design focused architectural office led by James Vira, AIA. With over 25 years of experience rooted in the design and construction of large scale, complex, projects, James has developed a diverse portfolio that includes work for colleges and universities, K-12 schools, international corporations, and private residential clients. He has completed projects at all stages of the design process and applies the same professionalism, creativity, and rigor to all projects, regardless of size.

Our mission statement is Bold Design for the Real World, and we approach each project with this idea at the forefront. We consistently strive to create innovative and inspiring architecture; however, we are also keenly aware of the pragmatic forces at work within each of our projects. Maintaining a balance between these two seemingly contradictory concepts is a challenge that benefits our clients and ultimately makes us better designers. 

In short, we love to design, and we love seeing our designs get we designed them.
