PROCESS / IT IS WITH GREAT CURIOSITY THAT WE LEARN WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO OUR CLIENTS, OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR PLANET.

We partner with our clients to grow and develop through design, which in turn, impacts how our communities move forward. Therefore, we are committed to working with our clients to understand what is ultimately in their best interests before we begin the design of a project. We use our knowledge and skill to engage in a co-discovery process to expand and validate our collective understanding of our client’s people and place. Research, workshops, and extensive stakeholder interviews ultimately reveal what is important to furthering the vitality and viability of the organization. We approach this work with humility, curiosity and a deep sense of responsibility.

Once grounded in a more comprehensive understanding of what is important, we go beyond solving the previously identified issues and look for opportunities where clients are able to offer even greater value to their own clients. Architectural projects represent huge opportunities for organizations to address current issues, and grow and develop beyond their current state of existence. Together, we like to imagine what is possible.

Based on this shared understanding of what is important and where new potentials exist for the client organization, we can move forward, well aware of the best opportunities to invest our client’s resources. Through thoughtful planning and with an eye towards the big picture, we look to design beautiful architecture grounded in its place.  The goal of our work is to lift up all aspects of the human experience and the natural environment: spiritual, aesthetic, functional and material. As resolute stewards of the earth’s sacred resources, we execute our work in a way that stands the test of time.
