Vaught Frye Larson Architects (VFLA) is a full capacity architecture firm with locations in Cheyenne, Wyoming and Fort Collins, Colorado. The firm offers comprehensive architectural services including architectural design, interior design, land planning, graphic design, and construction phase services. VFLA was founded in 1986 and grounds its practice on award-winning sustainable design.
Tracing VFLA’s history back to its roots reveals that it all started as a friendship between two freshmen at the University of Houston’s School of Architecture in 1966. Frank Vaught and Joe Frye collaborated on their fifth-year thesis project, moved to Fort Collins in 1971, and then completed their internship together. Frank and Joe founded Design Associates in 1973, primarily working on design/build house plans. Later with two other partners, they formed ZVFK in 1975. In 1986, they left ZVFK and started Vaught Frye Architects. In 2011, Vaught Frye merged with Justin Larson of JCL Architecture, forming Vaught Frye Larson Architects (VFLA). VFLA welcomed new partner, Chris Aronson, in 2014.
