Architecture is collaborative process, playing off the unique strengths, expertise, and experiences of everyone involved. Rather than simply dictate solutions, our role as architects is to foster a creative environment where there are no bad ideas, only stepping stones to great ones.
Every project is different. The context and constraints should be viewed as opportunities, not roadblocks; thus, enabling a unique, site-specific solution that goes beyond any preconceived notion.
Architecture is not an autonomous art form; every day we live in and interact with the built environment. Great design capitalizes on this relationship and engagement with its users.
Sustainability is equally environmental, economic, and social. Architecture should respect the environment, perform efficiently, and give back to the community.
