Our approach to design is guided by the belief that innovation occurs when architectural conventions are tested against the deeper aspirations of a project, transforming a building’s program into the most compelling spacial and practical work of architecture. We practice design as an exploration of program, conceptual thought and performance based building techniques for each specific location and situation. We look for the connections between these elements to create integrated design solutions. We see design as a process of discovery where ideas find their expression in the form of space, materiality, and cultural appropriateness.
As architects we are responsible for managing the design process. We do so through close collaboration and inclusive dialogue with our clients and their community of users. As leader of the design team, we work collaboratively with our consultants throughout the design process, absorbing and integrating the collective expertise and experience into our work. This collaboration is the foundation of the research and analysis that informs our feasibility studies, programming analyses, and design work.
