Our History

Founding principals Joe Sorci and Markus Gemsch established the firm in August 1995. Valli Sorci joined the team early in 1996 and is now CEO and Director of Business Operations. Prior to that, the founders had worked together for more than 20 years in various private and public associations. Thanks to a growing list of repeat clientele, Florida Architects expanded services to include Higher Education, Hospitality, General Commercial, Medical Offices and Retail to clients throughout Florida with four registered architects. Keeping in tune with ever evolving technologies and design enhancements, we are also a member of USGBC and proud to have five LEED®AP’s on staff as well as two Green Globes Professionals (GGP).


We believe that the best design is a product of creative collaboration. Our diverse team of designers, administrators and management personnel work closely together to meet our clients’ individual needs and see their vision to fruition.


We are proficient in designing within an array of construction delivery methods, including design/build, construction management, conventional bidding and fast-track. For a more in-depth list of services please feel free to contact us. For more information about our work, click here.



We believe that building facilities (consisting of the site, buildings and equipment), can and should promote a positive and productive working environment. The physical elements of design should support, facilitate and enhance the client’s mission, procedures and policies.
