Our practice is a fundamentally humanistic enterprise. Our design approach focuses on the inhabitants of our buildings. We strive to create buildings that transcend function to transform places and improve people’s lives. It all starts with our most important asset: our people. We value the intellectual intensity that comes from being under one roof on one floor, stimulated by healthy debates. While our practice is multifaceted and diverse, we are guided and inspired by strong underlying values:

  • Integrity: We honor our word, demonstrate active trust and make principled decisions.
  • Excellence: The standard by which we measure all facets of our practice.
  • Creativity / Innovation: Born from our desire to challenge the status quo through collaborative inquiry, exploration, vigorous dialogue and a synthesis of ideas.
