We consider the design process to be a journey, in which teamwork, collaboration, communication, relationships, and shared vision are critical.
We embark upon the design process by establishing and nurturing the relationships and communication of ideas that will be critical to the design process. Trust, mutual respect, and a well-established system of communication are the keys to building productive, meaningful, and lasting working relationships.
We begin with a study of the site, while we build relationships and establish the needs of the client and project program. The place where the two come together forms the starting point for our design process. Whether the eventual design solution is traditional or contemporary, it should be culturally and contextually relevant.
The charette is a sharing of ideas, a brainstorming session set within the context of the site and team. It is an honest, exhilarating, exhausting, and unbelievably productive way to establish a shared vision for the project.
Perhaps our greatest strength is in creating and maintaining the project vision. As stewards for the team’s shared vision for the project, we guide that vision through the design process as we address challenges, take advantage of opportunities, and meet the needs of the project program.
With over 40 years of experience and countless constructed projects, we appreciate the critical role that expertly executed construction documents play in the success of a project.
