We will work hand in hand with you to find the right design solution, the right contact, and the right price point.

Eclipse Architecture thrives on remodel work. We relish transforming neglected or underutilized spaces into thriving homes and businesses.  We are excited to partner with you to see your vision for your remodel realized.

Our first priority is executing your vision.

Good architecture makes for good communities. Eclipse Architecture is committed to contributing our talents for the benefit of the community.

The design process starts by listening to what the clients need, want and desire in their project and then working  to corroboratively to bring it to reality.

In the design process information and known constraints are analyzed to reduce costs and construction delays. The overarching goal is to represent your design through clear documents which effectively communicate your vision. These services include working closely with the whole team, including city agencies, facility managers, engineers and building contractors to ensure the end product is a seamless synthesis of function and beauty.

Tracy Egeline | principal

Tracy grew up on her family’s 100,000 acre cattle ranch in southwest Montana where attention to detail, focus and grit were values that she learned through hours of moving cattle, fixing fences and breaking horses. She remembers the thrill of exploring a newly built corral system and watching the ranch crew raise newly framed outbuildings. The construction project sites of the Dragging Y Cattle Company are where the seeds of her passion for architecture were sown. Tracy received her master’s degree in Architecture from Montana State University-Bozeman in 2007. For the past decade, Tracy worked for Bjerke Architects in Helena where she developed expertise in design and project management while cultivating long-term relationships with contractors and engineers.

“In 2018 I had the privilege of building a $1.6 million dollar landlord renovation, tenant fit-out and elevator addition that was designed by Tracy. From start to finish Tracy was a complete joy to work with. It is always refreshing to work with an architect who truly gets the needs of the client as well as the technical aspects of the design team/ builder relationship. Tracy is a great architect. I look forward to any opportunity to work  with Tracy, hopefully in the near future."

The benefits of a one-woman firm:

You have one single point of contact. The same person who is running the meetings is the same person drafting the building. I am 100% accountable for every detail of your project.

Information isn’t getting lost. In larger firms you can expect 3 or more people handling different aspects of your project. At Eclipse I am with you from the first meeting to final construction documents.

There is also less overhead in smaller firms. Your dollar will be maximized without compromising quality.
