MAX CROME, OWNER/PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT AT CROME ARCHITECTURE
Crome Architecture, a premier architecture, branding and interior design firm, approaches each
project with a singular design goal: to reflect each client’s distinct vision and unique identity.
Since 2001, Crome Architecture has successfully assisted clients with retail rollout programs,
commercial developments, residential designs, interior designs and branding strategies.
Briefly describe your business philosophy.
I believe in creating an environment that fosters independence and growth. I believe it is my job
to foster a creative environment and assign projects that will help employees try new things.
Describe your dream client/customer.
My dream customer is a creative individual with an interesting project. I believe that a good
designer can create a solution that satisfies the customer while also following sound design
principles. My ideal clients want to immerse themselves in the design and contribute creative ideas.
What makes you excel at what you do?
Any architect needs to be a multifaceted individual who is part artist, part scientist and part
builder. However, I believe I excel at what I do mainly because of my people skills. I do my best
to treat others with respect and live by the golden rule.
What makes your work worthwhile?
Architecture is a rewarding career in many ways. But most important, it is a way to serve the
public at large. My hope is to leave behind a mark of creativity that will outlast me.
