We are architects who design cities, towns, and neighborhoods. Our goal is to create beautiful places with lasting value for the communities they serve.

Design is the creative focus of our process—a participatory process in which we bring together citizens, economists, engineers, architects, developers, policy makers, government officials, and builders to construct humane and appropriate visions for the future.

Our designs build on the unique character and positive qualities inherited by each place in which we are privileged to work. By working at many scales, we find ways of coordinating the design of individual buildings; the public spaces they help create; the neighborhoods, towns, and cities of which they are a part; and the regional culture they celebrate into a viable and vital urban tapestry.

We see that as our mission. As individuals and as a team, we have that sense of purpose in common, and we apply it diligently and passionately to help guide us in identifying appropriate projects, in defining, with our clients, the objectives for each project we undertake.
