The clarity of the idea is our fundamental goal; form, light, and material are our tools. It is our aspiration to develop a body of work that reinforces this fundamental precept and with our clients, create inspiring spaces, and build great buildings. Each of our projects is seen in singularity, a specific resolution of program, site, and use. By developing concepts and solutions, which are intrinsic to functional, structural, or programmatic needs of the building, a solid conceptual basis is created which drives the architectural solution.

We are passionate about creating innovative, meaningful, and flexible interior spaces that meet the client's programmatic, functional needs, aesthetic goals, and performance requirements. Materials are chosen for their inherent integrity, natural beauty, and patina. Natural daylight and connectivity to the exterior environment are pivotal in each project. The diurnal cycle and its impact on our perception of interior space and exterior form enliven the architecture, animating both space, and surface.

Our process begins with interactive charrettes focused on Goals Definition, Fact Finding - analysis of existing conditions, requirements and context, Needs Determination - specific functions and the spaces required to facilitate them and finally, Concepts. Each project is developed with functional and programmatic requirements carefully responding to the site and context.  Long-term planning systematically addresses a myriad of issues which the facilities will face over the life of the project.

Resiliency is an integral part of our design process. We believe the tenets of sustainability align with basic design principles of good architectural practice. Long before green rating systems were developed these principles were used to respond to sun, wind, water, and materials to inform and shape projects. Sustainable design should always begin with these basic design principles to truly integrate a project into its specific site and context.

The modern library is at the nexus of converging technology and explosive information resources.   As such the library’s role has shifted from the depository of information to a gateway and instructional platform for library patrons.  The librarian must be facilitated with the proper instructional resources to assist the customer through the maze of material.  We understand the importance and dynamic nature of this new and important role.

The design and organization of laboratories and support spaces is derived from functional priorities and systems flexibility.  A laboratory planning module has been identified to optimize area utilization, flexibility, ergonomics, safety and accessibility in teaching and research laboratories.  Each planning concept incorporates this laboratory planning module for the design of building structure, mechanical, plumbing and electrical system distribution as well as laboratory room and bench layouts.
