The foundation upon which we create projects is a thorough understanding of our clients’ needs, aspirations, and constraints. Before design work is begun, an intensive study is conducted to determine the generating forces of each project; only when a design reflects and supports the users’ needs and goals can it be considered successful architecture. This firm designs for its clients.

Coupled with our responsiveness to the clients’ requirements is a commitment to produce excellent architecture. Our work is characterized by sensitivity to the context into which our buildings are placed, an assimilation and distillation of local and regional architectural history, and the belief that successful architecture is both accessible and enjoyable to use. Our buildings must work, and they must fit.
