about

Ground Level Architecture + Design is a Philadelphia-based firm focused on providing creative and environmentally sound architectural and design services. Founded in 2007 by Carl Hoffmann, the name Ground Level has many references to his architecture and business approach.

  • Ground =   a building’s reference point, anchored, connected to the task
  • Level =  a construction tool, a straight forward, balanced and honest approach

Carl Hoffmann is a registered architect in Pennsylvania and Washington states, and a LEED accredited professional. Before starting his own firm, he worked at small and large architecture and design firms in Seattle and Philadelphia, designing for clients such as Urban Outfitters, Betsy Johnson, Mavi, Façonnable, and Geisinger Health System.
