DESIGNERS, RESEARCHERS AND COLLABORATORS
OUR APPROACH + EXPERTISE
We practice cultural placemaking. What that means to us is design that brings places to life. It means thinking beyond the box, beyond the property line, drawing from and contributing to the context of each project. It means involving community in all stages of the design so the outcome reflects the people that it serves.
We tailor our strategy to bring out the most in each project, leveraging the opportunities of the project context in all its forms—physical, social, digital, environmental, experiential, regulatory, and economic. We embrace a broad understanding of the project definition, ask the right questions, look beyond the property line and provide actionable strategies.
Collaboration is at the core of our process. A nimble, collaborative approach allows us to succeed in a wide range of project types. For every project we lead, the team is carefully selected to bring together targeted expertise, shared values, and fresh thinking. Our collaborators often return the favor by including our expertise in their projects.
We are passionate about our work and bring excitement and dedication to our diverse project types and expertise.
