Each of our projects begins with an intensive period of research as the first step in understanding all aspects of a project. Whether programmatic, technical, cultural or issues of sustainability, the research establishes a foundation of understanding and is the start of a conceptual framework for moving forward. Through the use of drawings, physical models and computer models each project evolves around the research and an architectural concept. In addition to the design of the building, the drawings and models are the same tools used to insure that the client remains an integral part of the process. We believe in an architecture that is unique, yet sympathetic to the existing context and through this process believe that we can arrive at the best solutions.
