We design real spaces for real people. Beautiful and thought provoking realms in which to live. In essence, we believe that architecture is a immersive medium that has the capacity to influence our mental state and facilitate our interactions within the physical environment. Architecture forms and frames space, balancing our world at the scale of the city, the office, the home, and the human being. Ultimately, we want our architecture and influence on space to carefully and positively affect the human experience. To balance beauty and purpose, while strive to inspire and aid in our everyday actions.
Large or small, affordable or luxurious, each project has the capacity to be extraordinary. Every project has a unique potential inherent in its context and persona. We attempt to uncover and heighten that potential. Collaboratively we decipher the specific desires and needs of the clients, decode and appease building regulations, site restrictions, and compute budgets. We examine, survey, and re-examine views, adjacencies, and movement. We then translate it all into space. Into volumes, shapes, sequences, materials, and emotions. Ultimately and effectively, we synthesize and balance these desires and needs into a careful, choreographed design.
