Community engagement is at the heart and soul of everything we do at Propel Studio. Our strength is derived from our inclusive working methods and focus on social and environmental sustainability.
We are a community focused design firm, that works to make each project a benefit to the communities in which we work. We donate design services to non profits and local schools. We designed a flyer for the Montavilla Farmers Market, and set up a booth to offer free design advice to market-goers. We worked with Architecture for Humanity (now called Open Architecture) to design a youth center in South Africa. We designed an outdoor classroom for a local elementary school. Each of these activities has connected us to an incredible group of passionate people. We feed off the enthusiasm of others to work together making our cities and towns better places to live. Architecture is a small piece of the puzzle that we can bring to the table, but it is the people we work with, the neighborhood leaders that collaborate with us, and the excitement of the public that really drives our firm forward.
Our dedication to community doesn’t start and stop at our office. Each of our employees is involved in various volunteer organizations in the communities in which we live and work. We serve on Neighborhood Association Boards, within the American Institute of Architects, volunteer with Architects in Schools, and through business groups, among others.
We believe architecture holds immense power to make our world a better place and our mission is to carefully wield our skills to deliver amazing projects for our clients and the community. We are passionate about what we do and wield our design skills to help solve problems small and large. Learn more about Propel Studio’s work by clicking the link below.
