With over 80 years combined experience in architectural design and planning, Tim Wentz, with Roz Cifolelli and Peter Adams came out of The Martin Architectural Group to provide a workplace for developers to make use of their dynamic imagination integrating inventive design with the serious business sense required in this evolving economy.

Our expertise is in looking at the more difficult sites developers are faced with, creating multi-family developments, senior communities, retail and mixed-use centers and more complex communities that blend their craftsmans' sensibilities regarding stunning, yet fresh design, and intelligent construction—with their marketing sensibilities regarding the post-construction challenges of clients attempting to fill the units they have designed.

Our passion lies somewhere between thinking outside-of-the-box and doing the impossible. Gate 17 thrives on turning sub-optimal or otherwise unattractive sites into natural communities... taking spaces deemed "too small" and expanding the yield in clever and surprising ways... coming up with original solutions when functional "must haves" seem unachievable... translating preliminary stirrings and an embryonic sense of a project into a master plan that leaves the client feeling that he has a true agent for their greatest intentions.

Gate 17: The ability to project ones mind into the future to be of service. The ability to listen, to understand another's motivation, to interpret and to create.
