In recent years, the world has seen exponential rates of change in technology, energy supply, climate, and business models—all of which impact the human experience. We help our clients prepare for an evolving future. We design for change.

As an interdisciplinary firm with over 65 years of experience, we have developed a holistic approach to design. Collaboration between disciplines happens early and often, resulting in innovative solutions throughout the design process. Our instinct to integrate design with advanced engineering, research, and equitable practices yields sophisticated, sustainable, and human-centered responses to the profound challenges of our time.

At the beginning of a client relationship, we actively listen to understand the client’s goals, culture, and any future changes they anticipate will impact their business, campus, or community. This process shapes a sustainability vision that embodies the client’s values. The vision is realized through ideas that reflect our deep understanding of all aspects of a project’s performance: human experience, cultural significance, technical rigor, and systems efficiency.

Our goal is to design buildings that are embraced by the owners, operators, users, and community members who live, work, and gather inside and around them. A beloved building—one so treasured it lasts for generations—is both beautiful and sustainable.

We believe it is our responsibility to shape the future through design. Join us.
