Whether working in complex historical districts or on a vacant site, the design process involves an understanding of site specific issues of location, landscape, history, availability of materials and construction methods. The design process includes considerable client interaction.

Design solutions arrive through the thoughtful manipulation of light, color, texture, form and geometry. An understanding of current technology, attention to detail and awareness of location, landscape and history lead to design solutions that respect historical, topographical and regional context without being revivalist. Projects are designed to be durable, timeless and appropriate.

The office of Robert M. Gurney, FAIA has created a body of work that has won more than two hundred local, regional and national design awards, including two AIA National Honor Awards, six National AIA Housing Awards, and three American Architecture Awards. In addition the office's work has been published in over two hundred local, national and international magazines, books, and periodicals, and in 2010 Robert Gurney was included in Architectural Digest's "AD 100". The work of Robert Gurney is the subject of a recent monograph, "Modern Order Houses by Robert Gurney".

Accomplishments in design are complemented by involvement in service activities to the profession and to students of Architecture. Robert Gurney has served as a member of the AIA Northern Virginia Chapter Board of Directors, Design Committee, Schools Connection Committee and the Virginia Society State Design Committee and is currently a member of the VSAIA Honors Committee.
