Contextual &
Thoughtful Design

The foundation of our service is our collaborative approach. We work closely with our clients to create unique solutions tailored to their culture, context, values, and needs. From initial studies and planning, through design, construction, and beyond, we work as a team to help clients achieve their goals at every step of the project.

Working collaboratively with owners and users, we develop healthy building solutions that encourage personal, professional, and educational growth, balancing aesthetics with technical performance. We design buildings that channel desirable natural forces like daylight while resisting other forces like gravity, rain, and uncomfortable temperatures. Our projects create a visual dialogue in harmony with adjacent buildings. They are sustainable but economical; operationally efficient, but inspirational. They are constructed with durable, locally sourced materials and we hope they become timeless assets for the community.

Interior Design

Our mission is to thoughtfully design to our client’s vision and project needs for today and in their future. The process of thoughtful design requires clear understanding of our client’s long-term business strategies and brands. Our interior solutions take into consideration health and wellness, sustainability and durability, collaboration and flexibility, and comfort and productivity, all while maintaining the project budget. We see a project’s success as the involvement of all team members in intelligent planning and creative problem solving. Our goal is to listen, serve, and deliver beautiful interiors that are on budget, high performance, and a reflection of our client’s vision for the future.


Long-range planning is a critical step for many institutions seeking to assess their resources and set strategic goals for the future. We work with a wide variety of clients, from growing school districts to companies in transition, to develop economically viable master plans that guide future growth and encourage responsible development. With each project, we strive to enhance the sense of place on campus, inspire sustainable practices, and preserve key legacies. We also look for opportunities to adapt existing resources, build flexibility, and promote new uses of current spaces. Throughout the process, we incorporate user input and build a consensus in the user community.


Using a variety of CGI tools, we can assist clients in making more informed and confident decisions and we can deliver better design results. We use realistic conceptual renderings to bring our projects to life even during the early design phases. Applying these tools in a real-time “live design” process, we can also help engage community participation in design and assist with fundraising efforts. We use virtual reality tools to create immersive architectural experiences which give clients a visceral sense of the design. These help our clients make decisions more quickly and with confidence, well before construction commences.
