Creating a shared landscape that goes beyond aesthetics to deliver meaningful, holistic experiences that enrich the wellbeing of our clients.

A Better Way to Design

Upon founding the architecture firm, Veronica Schreibeis Smith was convinced that there must be a better way to design and build. Under her leadership, Vera Iconica began a journey of taking responsibility for a new standard, finding healthier alternatives, and connecting buildings to nature in powerful ways.
