Our project teams are comprised of highly experienced staff members, who combine their knowledge and creativity to devise beautiful, integrated, and sustainable design solutions. Our average staff tenure is ten years; our average level of experience is fifteen years; two thirds of our architects are LEED certified. To ensure consistency and a high degree of personal service for our clients, we maintain the same core team throughout a project and our four principals are personally involved in every design.

Our Office

Artist Talk

In January 2017 we began our art lending program with a talk and installation by multi-media artist Maria Molteni. She spoke about her work exploring sports, crafts, spiritualism, and urban planning. From fibers to found objects, paintings to performances, Molteni engages formalism and functionality to create new environments and catalysts for conversation.

Art Event in the Office

Painter and performance artist Coe Lapossy performs her piece Meg/Sydney/Alec in the office. The resulting work is now mounted on our back wall.
