Building Design

We combine art and science to rethink, refine and reshape the built environment. From schools and courthouses to multi-family housing and healthcare facilities, we have a long history of public and private work and have developed an approach to designing high-performance buildings that involves energy conservation and green building principles. We believe in design that responds to the natural environment, community values, and clients’ functional needs.
