Design Philosophy

Design today is a complex, interactive process. Although much of the firm's work has a contemporary or "modern" aesthetic, we avoid bringing a predisposition of "style" to a project or imposing our aesthetics on our clients. Each project is a collaboration. From the beginning we seek to work with the client in every aspect of planning and design. We endeavor to learn about the special requirements and the unique culture of the client's organization and bring our experience to bear in order to find innovative and cost effective solutions. The most successful projects are the result of this interaction and the resulting space becomes an expression of this collaboration.
