Great architectural design does not happen in isolation.
It’s the result of a dedicated, COLLABORATIVE partnership between you and our KNOWLEDGEABLE design team that is RESPONSIVE to your needs and goals. Ultimately, your vision and our expertise gets your project to the finish line. And did we mention we’re LIKEABLE?
REAL People — Your work is more than a profession, it’s a passion that touches real people’s lives. We know, because that’s what architecture is for us. That’s why we strive to connect on a professional and a human level. That’s where the best work comes from.
REAL Work — We design spaces that combine human elements and technology, beauty and practicality. This is a major principle of our work and will bring out the best in the work that’s done in your new space.
REAL Results — We delivered projects that elevate education, propel business, and join communities. View our projects here.
The team you begin with will remain your team throughout the entire project. We begin with a series of meetings to define project goals and measures of success. Then we nurture collaboration among our employees, consultants, contractors, vendors, and regulatory officials. As community architects, we make sure you know your team, that all team members are committed, and that every decision is consistent with your vision.
“Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of people working together.”
We create buildings and spaces where communities can thrive.
Picture a student, perhaps in physics or history, who finally “gets it” because the building provides a real life example. Imagine a professional team that sees improved productivity (or a breakthrough discovery) from a customized space plan. Think of the comfort a “home-style” facility can provide as a caregiver comforts a loved one.
This is the difference that can be made through community architecture, and it’s what we envision at the outset of any project.
Whether designing for a school, a retail space, a corporate office, a college campus, or any other institution, our goal is to create architecture that elevates the people around it.
As community architects, the buildings and spaces we design are part of a bigger story.
Architectural design is an investment in the future of your organization and your community. This investment must account for real-world constraints like time, budget, and material resources. These complexities are not roadblocks, but stepping stones to better design.
This perspective guides our three-step approach:
Dig Down — Here, we learn and evaluate, to fully understand your needs as our client, the goals of the project, and elements like timeline, budget, and materials. We also engage in critical due diligence and investigations to understand the physical conditions of the project.
Build Up — With our foundational knowledge in place, we begin to create. Our team will consider many iterations and strategies for the project, building off the central idea, to uncover the best possible design. We’ll also gather all required permits during this phase.
Move Forward — Now we begin to turn your vision into a reality. We’ll work with building contractors to ensure quality until construction is finalized, and present you with a brand new, up-to-code building that blends function and design. It will be a space you’re proud of — one that serves you and your community for years to come.
Architecture instills a building or space with value for the community around it. You’re not just constructing a building, you’re creating a space for moments between people. But it can’t be done alone. We’re the experts in architecture, and you’re the expert on your organization and community.
Let’s build great spaces together.
Ultimately, success comes from your satisfaction as our client. This means completing projects not only on budget and on time, but delivering a building that stands up to the excellence your organization deserves and creates real results for your community.
