Firm Experience & Design Approach

Our work and professional interest includes Projects at all scales ranging from Urban Design Master Planning to Institutional and Commercial Projects as well as to the design of multi-family housing and single-family residences. We have successfully addressed an equally wide range of building types and settings from the urban high-rise to the traditional village center and beyond to the isolated rural week-end house. Commensurately, we are poised to respond with equal ease and competence to the design of buildings and communities in traditional historical vocabularies or in cool abstraction -- as the unique character and specific setting of each Project demand.

Whether addressing a simple house design, the requirements of a police station or other highly complex institutional program or the demands of a town or regional plan, we approach our work with sensitivity and with a keen interest in supporting every aspect of anticipated project use and experience.

Since 1980 our Firm has produced pioneering work in pedestrian-oriented Community Design, committed to achieving s strong and meaningful sense of place of historical resonance and lasting quality within its particular regional context. Our work has garnered numerous commendations and Awards and today can be described as on the cutting-edge nationally and internationally in Architectural and Urban Design.

Each Project undertaken is accorded the study and specific response it requires. Every Project is approached with a concern for feasibility and viability welcoming the collaboration of the complimentary disciplines of construction and economic analysis.
