“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.
“We hold high standards and value practical, real architectural solutions.”
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 restrictions are not roadblocks, but stepping stones to better design.
This perspective guides our three-step approach:
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.
Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.
Great design does not happen in isolation.
It’s the result of a dedicated, collaborative partnership between the client and the design team – your vision and our expertise.
One of our core values is to create work that embodies your core values. We aim to create real connections — between our teams, and between the space we create and its future inhabitants. We highly value:
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 the client’s vision.
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.
Nothing compares the feeling of seeing real results from completed projects. The communities we envisioned at the outset – the students, the professionals, the care recipients – are now real people refining skills, making breakthroughs, and living better lives in facilities that are custom designed for their needs. These communities are elevated, are their stories moving forward.
