Knowledge

Our knowledge emerges from a constant state of exploration. New building types are investigated. Evolving social, learning, working and healing trends are analyzed and weighed. The natural environment is respected and integrated. New modes of design expression, technology, materials and construction innovation are assessed and embraced.

Our responsibility as designers

is to help everyone understand the design ideas and the insight that created them. Ideas are critical to the process of architecture. They are the manifestation of our expertise, industry innovation, sustainable best practices and focus on the experience of people

Sustainability:

Emory Student Center

The Emory Student Center sets a new standard for student life buildings across the U.S. with transformative practices and sustainable choices embedded in every design decision.

To achieve this level of performance, the facility employs a range of effective systems and technologies to reduce energy consumption, conserve resources and increase occupant health:

Art & Architecture:

Colorado Tower

Colorado Tower, with its location on a prominent corner in downtown Austin, presented a unique opportunity for art and architecture to come together to affirm the new urban spirit emerging in the city’s western district.

Material Research:

601 Mass Stone Curtian

We wanted to give people something to remember about 601 Massachusetts Avenue, located in the heart of Mt.Vernon Square in Washington D.C. The full-block, mixed-use building was not only a byproduct of the city grid but how the building was going to be used.

We asked ourselves: how do you make an efficient program layout that makes sense on the interior, but also works on the exterior? Conceived from the inside out, the space planning and interior design of the office building was of paramount importance.
