What’s New

October Feature


For the month of October, we thought we would keep with the theme of last month and focus on another service offered by Stephen J. Kramer Architecture + Design, So for the month of October, we are focusing on RENDERING. For those who aren’t completely sure here are two definitions of the word rendering that we found
“A consummately lifelike three-dimensional image using color and shading of a building”
“A work of visual art, especially a detailed architectural drawing”

Stephen J. Kramer Architecture + Design offers building rendering services for job signs, leasing brochures, fund raising, presentations or any other event you may need a rendering for. We can match paint colors and materials selected to show the building as it look once it is built. Renderings can be provided on projects that we have designed or for any other project in need of rendering services.

If you are in need of a building rendering for a presentation or job sign give us a call to set up your rendering. For more information please contact Miriam Ade at 210-479-8900 or by e-mail at mgade@sjkramer.com.


MS Fundraising Continues

Thanks to all for your support and donations to the National MS society but fund raising isn’t over yet. Our ride is this weekend and I am only $360 away from my goal of $15,000. I am already shaving our Team logo into my head on Friday and if I reach my goal by the end of the ride on Saturday I will once again sport this fresh look.
