How We Work
Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to build the right team for each client. From there, the “concierge,” service side of our business sets us apart. Your creative team takes full responsibility as your personal advocate, solving all problems from start to completion. The balance of team and technology allows us to care for clients starting early in the process, getting it right the first time, every time.
Our Design Process
The foundation of our design and development process is dream visioning, one of the most important components of schematic design and planning. Through dream visioning we carefully explore the major concepts and ideas of the project – owner goals, a site’s history, surrounding environment, local design guidelines and materiality, thus developing the overall “story” of the client’s needs, site and community. With this we craft the design concept and the technical strategy that is the foundation for the project. The result is an invaluable tool for the design team and critical stakeholders. And most importantly, “the client.”
