Design Approach

Vision and Inspiration

We see architectural design as a collaborative process of mutual education, as an opportunity to try out fuller ways of living in a richer world, to participate in creating a legacy for others, to bring joy into the lives of many. This perspective is grounded in our vision of the future—a future in which we successfully live within our limits, meet the challenges of climate disruption and create an equitable, healthy and safe world.

Design Philosophy

Our philosophy is that sustainable ways of being lead to sustainable forms of action which find expression in sustainable architecture and communities that are rich in identity and spirit of place. In this conception, architecture and communities are capable of echoing characteristics of the natural world that support us—growth, beauty, and phenomenal diversity within a balanced whole.
