Collaboration and Innovation
As part of the team that received the 2018 AIA Honor Award for Collaborative Achievement, we know that innovation and design excellence are the products of research, openness, and communication. With each project, we embark on a collaborative journey with our clients, consultants, builders, and each other. This collective discovery process creates a more holistic work of architecture, reflecting our profound respect for the natural world and the people who inhabit our buildings.
Diversity and Inclusion
We know diversity is a key driver in our creative practice and recognize empowerment as fundamental to our success. We have created an inclusive, supportive, and safe workplace for all genders, ages, ethnicities, orientations, nationalities, and abilities. As a small business with a long history of collaborations with MBE and WBE firms, we believe our team should always reflect the diversity of our clients, users, and the communities we work in.
Integrated Sustainable Design
All architecture is local. Each project brings with it unique challenges based on a particular climate, site, and use. We recognize the environmental impact of buildings and that resource stewardship is integral to our design decisions, from building massing and orientation to materials selection and energy use. We have directed the delivery of LEED Silver, Gold and Platinum, Net Zero, and Sustainable Sites projects through a collaborative, integrated design process.
