Our commitment to excellence is present in all of our endeavors. We believe in contributing to the broader design community as well as to the development of ideas and practices through our built work, thought-leadership, publications, and involvement with architectural education opportunities. Our team’s efforts have been recognized by our peers with multiple AIA design awards while also receiving accolades within the educational design community for programming, planning, and design excellence. Our partners are extremely proud of this wide array of praise and feel this demonstrates our commitment to being on the forefront of innovative architectural ideas while maintaining a focus on project specific expertise that is so critical to the functional success of our clients and projects.
