We believe in the power of an integrative design process. Collaboration is an essential part of our design process. We work with knowledgeable consultants. We find that extraordinary solutions are ones that resonate across disciplines, that withstand critical analysis from disparate points of view, and that are simple in the sense of being conceptually economical. We seek out consulting partners whose approach and experience can enrich the design process and the resultant buildings. Within our office, we employ co-workers who are similarly committed to excellence. Collaboration within our office not only promotes personal growth, it enriches our designs by drawing on the various strengths of our team members. Dialogue, constructive criticism and respect for multiple perspectives promote meaningful participation, cultivate accountability, and improve the quality of our client's projects.
