Responsive Designs, Architects

​Responsive Designs, Architects, prides itself on its skills to create stylistic designs that incorporate energy efficient and pragmatic spatial solutions.   Passion for the environment is reflected in appreciation for contextual design strategies that enhance the natural environment of the building, both externally and internally. A well-designed building should integrate timelessly into the lives of the users and the surrounding landscape, while imprinting a small, sustainable, and sensitive footprint on the earth.


Responsive Designs, Architects, is owned by Connie Gordon, and recognizes that every project is unique. They offer architectural services tailored to the particular needs of each project, individual, and budget. With over 30 years of extensive experience in residential and light commercial projects and remodels, including historic structures, Responsive Designs strongly emphasizes the ability to communicate thoroughly and precisely with all parties involved in the design team, especially the Client. Good communication is the key to good design and subsequently, to a successful project. We strive to create a design process that is productive, efficient, non-stressful, and enjoyable.


Ms. Gordon has been involved in sustainable building practices for over 30  years, and minored in Solar Thermal Energy Engineering in college. She is extremely knowledgeable about the availability and use of sustainable, non-toxic and environmentally sensitive building materials. 

She currently serves on the City of Durango Design Review Board.
