Stone River Architects
At Stone River Architects, we know that the ultimate goal of anything we design is to serve the needs of the client and enhance their interactions with the built environment. Too often, architects get hung up on their vision and goals for a project and forget this. At Stone River, we focus on building relationships with our clients. These relationships help us better understand a client’s needs and make the process more successful for all involved. It is because of these relationships that we have been fortunate to serve many repeat clients, some of which we have been working with for over 15 years.
Our design approach strives to create environments which are healthy, pleasant and comfortable for those who use them. We advocate creating building systems which are energy efficient, both as a means of reducing operating costs and as a sustainable practice. Our material selections and assemblies are designed to last and be easily maintained and we pride ourselves on our ability to produce a set of concise, comprehensive drawings that are easily understood and executed by the contractor.
Stone River Architects endeavors to integrate sustainable practices into every project we work on. Whether your project is looking for LEED certification or a simple tenant fit-up, we believe that sustainability isn’t just about a fancy plaque on the wall. Instead, we make conscience choices with regard to each assembly and material, and look to integrate sustainability as much as the project scope and budget allow. Above all, we inform the client of these options so that they are able to make informed decisions.

Jamie Neefe, RA, NCARB
Jamie Neefe graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1992, beginning his career in the Pittsburgh area before relocating to New Hampshire in 1998. He has a passion for drawing and design, having enjoyed projects in the commercial, civic and residential arenas; but it is his breadth of experience in the healthcare niche that has helped him to build a reputation of creativity, responsiveness and professionalism. Philosophically, he ascribes to the principle that his drawings are another tool in the construction manager’s belt that he provides to them. They need to be readable, coordinated, and most importantly build-able. When not drawing or spending time with his two daughters, Jamie finds his inspiration while hiking or skiing in the White Mountains and his solace in music.
