HOW WE WORK
We do not begin our projects from the perspective of overarching style-- we instead observe, research and listen to our sites, our clients and their needs to craft customized solutions to varied problems. We strive to simply and effectively explain complex architectural ideas to other people. We delight in the use of color, material, texture, proportion, scale, dimension, and all sources of inspiration to inform our design ideas. We sketch and draw, make physical and computer models, test and mock-up materials and assemblies, and specify things with precision. We coordinate our work with teams of consultants and manage our projects with intention and methodical standards. Our goal is always to get our clients' projects built-- we are respectful leaders and attentive listeners to this aim. We communicate freely with our clients and project teams, and we believe in teaching and sharing our expertise generously. We are transparent in our process and in our billing, outlining project costs and fees up front, and continually checking-in with our clients throughout design and construction as their budgets and schedules evolve.
