Our Services

Design

We are collaborators engaged in mindful dialogue and thoughtful design that emerges from our client relationships. Our team-oriented workplace promotes shared knowledge and open communication that directly influences our design work. As we focus on educational design, we emphasize relationship-building, transparency, engagement, and respect for all participants.

Planning

We understand that each client has unique needs stemming from community demographics, local identity, and other unique needs in each district. We support the dynamic nature of teaching and learning, which is ultimately driven by the desired goals of each district. We invite a comprehensive dialogue around learning, technology, and sustainability in order to provide a customized approach to planning and design strategies.

Facilitation

Community-based design starts with meaningful stakeholder engagement. We understand that critical issues are unique and nuanced within each community. As we find a common voice, we solve complex problems elegantly and develop a strategy to further explore ideas throughout the design process.

Who We Are

We are a community-focused architecture firm that works alongside students, educators, and other local community members. We engage in authentic and value-driven conversations to help them envision a future for their schools.

As we strive to create innovative and thoughtful spaces, we meet our partners early and often to discuss what they're looking for in their community’s learning environments. These rich and authentic conversations form the basis for the longstanding partnerships at the core of our practice.

We believe that the key to delivering successful projects is surrounding ourselves with people who share a collective goal ― to strive to fulfill the diverse aspirations of the learner, and inspire them to make a difference in the world.
