Engaging user groups and neighborhood members is a vital aspect of our design process. Our role is to guide a design discussion, gathering input from all those who will be affected by our work.

The energy that fuels our design work comes from the people who will live in our buildings. Our goal is to capture their ideas, gather input and opinions and distill them into a clear design concept. The only way to successfully do this is to engage as many people as possible in the design process. Whether we are working on a small house or a master plan for an entire neighborhood we want to have design conversations with the end users and work with them to develop concepts, discuss materials, and work through design challenges. We educate our clients about architecture and the design process, and in return learn from them about their ideas, talents and perspective. It is often the melding of ideas that leads to the most successful and creative solutions.
