Chris Goode, AIA


Co-founder and Managing Partner, Chris is dedicated to client relations while also actively participating in providing design direction and critique to many ongoing projects. Chris has over thirty years of experience as an architect and enjoys sketching out initial concepts for various building types from middle schools to performing arts centers and more. 


He is excellent at hearing what owner’s and end-user’s wants and needs are, and converting those conversations into fundamental design tenets for the resultant architecture and design in multiple project types. GVSA takes great pride in bringing positive surprises to the design process and this begins with really hearing and connecting with the client at the beginning of the project that Chris excels at. He received his Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture from North Carolina State University and his Master of Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley.
