Who is Plunkett Raysich Architects?

With a history dating back to 1935 and roots reaching to 1890, Plunkett Raysich Architects, LLP is a national innovative architecture and interior design firm. We are professionals skilled in providing a variety of services from strategic planning, architectural design, interior design, and construction administration. Our goal is to transform learning environments, bring order to complex healthcare facilities, re-envision ways of working, create places for people to call home, and provide safe and inclusive worship spaces for our clients. Our portfolio spans across the nation with four offices located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, Sarasota, Florida, and Buda, Texas.

We exist simply because of our clients. It is our mission to achieve our clients’ vision. That starts by listening to their needs. We strive to capture the essence of their organization and their vision. We work to remove complexity, simplify the issues, and transform their needs into a solution that is beautiful, functional, and within reach as it becomes an extension of who they are.

At PRA, we believe there is a great responsibility in being an architect. The projects we help design shape skylines of cities and provide spaces for communities to gather. We have the duty to create safe and functional buildings, but also believe we have responsibility to provide spaces that improve the lives of people and better the communities around us. After all, the final result isn’t the building, but the ideas behind it.

Deciding to pursue any building project is a daunting task, but we are here to listen, understand, and guide. We are honored each time a client invites us to help them rethink their facilities. Reach out to us if you have any questions, want more information, or help thinking over ideas.


PRA was established in 1935 in Milwaukee, WI., but we can trace our roots to 1890

For us, planning a project goes far beyond the design process. We get to know the client business like it was our own. Our goal is always to provide individualized services focused on improving outcomes.

Construction remains one part science and one part art. During construction we act as the eyes and ears of the client, translating our design intent from the drawings for the contractor and scrutinizing the work put in place.

Our Interior Design Studio is fully integrated into our Architectural Design Process. Our interior designers join early design meetings to assure the design intent and client philosophies are incorporated throughout the project.

"Pre-Design" is the traditional architectural phase during which the project size and cost are set. Our immersive design techniques are important contributors to that process, allowing us to dial in a design based on need and goals.

Strategic Design Partner

We partner with engineers, specialty consultants, construction managers, and contractors to ensure our clients are fully served, regardless of the location or special conditions. Partnerships may last beyond the needs of a single client or project. Those relationships are the result of complimentary services that benefit the client and are borne by the mutual respect and support forged from the work done on many projects. These relationships exist to provide continual support to past clients and to ensure unique services to enhance the projects of future clients throughout the nation.

Practice Design Group (PDG) was formed in 2002 by Jeff Carter, DDS and Pat Carter, IIDA to provide design services to dentists seeking a professional and collaborative alternative to the services offered by traditional providers. PDG and PRA first started working together in 2012, and the relationship blossomed over many projects. Practice Design Group and Plunkett Raysich Architects worked successfully for many years as strategic partners. In 2024, PRA and PDG formally merged to provide fully integrated design solutions to dentists and dental specialists throughout the nation.
