Design is about problem solving and detailing; it is a collaboration
of ideas that achieve a common comprehensible goal. Every scale
necessitates design from the construction details to urban planning
because each project informs the parameters of another project. Just as
there is a challenge to make a prototype design for a retail store work
in any given context, so is the test to understand how any one typology
of architecture affects another typology in an urban planning context.
The way a wall detail meets a floor is as much of a design opportunity
as the juxtaposition of a high rise to the street.
Everything is design. It is how we see the world and how we communicate
what we do. Design is not just one phase of the building process; rather
the foundation from which we are able to achieve solutions to challenges
we are presented. Our passion for meticulously confronting the world
through the design process broadens our scope of work and strengthens
our vision. Interest in collaboration, community, and environment
supports design as a tool for investigating life's everyday practices.
