About Us


Quatrefoil is a leading exhibition design-build firm with clients across the United States including history and art museums, science centers, zoos and aquariums, historic sites, cultural and visitor centers and more. We create inspiring museum experiences through collaboration and a multidisciplinary design approach.   The firm currently includes 20 full and part-time professionals representing every phase of project development including master planning, 3D and graphic design, multimedia interactive development and programming, content development and research, fabrication and installation.   The firm was established more than 30 years ago by four friends who realized that by collaborating — instead of focusing only on their areas of expertise — they could offer a more complete range of services to the museum industry.  

That spirit of collaboration and the value of a holistic approach that looks at the project from a multiplicity of perspectives continue to guide Quatrefoil’s work today. From the project’s outset, we make certain we understand your vision. We work with you to define the visitor experience goals for your project and make certain our design solutions align with your objectives. We invest highly in the front-end of the process to ensure that everyone has a shared understanding of the project goals.  

Quatrefoil’s process is both collaborative and customized — not “cookie-cutter” — to reflect the unique needs of your project.  We combine our extensive experience with a creative approach and tested project management tools and processes to create a visitor experience that:

1. engages multiple audiences

2. achieves your educational and experiential objective; and

3. respects your project budget and schedule.
