Humanity is the center.
This principle shapes our design practice, and defines who we are as architects and urban designers. We are committed to enriching people's lives through architecture that is gleaned from, and woven into the community. Toward this end, our practice is built around the tenets of Whole Community Design™, a design philosophy that focuses on people before places.
Whole Community Design™ creates built environments that are rich in diversity, authentic and sustainable over time. It is design that brings people together, gives them a sense of identity and inclusion in something larger than themselves.
