We are thought leaders who aspire to make a positive impact on the world through our creative endeavors. We are approachable collaborators who understand the power of inclusive design to bring about desirable outcomes. We are committed stewards of sustainable place-making.
Our clients aspire to boldly and positively impact the built environment. They value creativity, holistic, critical thinking, sustainability, and quality at every step. Our clients pursue triple-bottom-line outcomes and concern themselves with the ongoing maintenance and the legacy of the project.
Our process thrives on the creativity and inclusivity of multi-disciplinary collaboration; employs rigorous planning, analysis, design, production, and due diligence to deliver industry-leading solutions; and balances leading technology with time-tested, humanity-affirming principles.
Our projects meet at the intersection of bold vision and technical excellence to transform their surroundings, add meaning to the lives of those who use them, heal and foster people's relationship with the land, and are designed and crafted to endure the test of time.
PARKS & PRESERVES
Parks and nature preserves provide the best opportunities for people to (re)connect with nature. We believe that parks should celebrate the unique natural and social assets of each site and community.
We believe that stormwater is a gift. Our green infrastructure projects strive to beautifully and effectively collect, convey, treat, and infiltrate runoff so that it becomes a community and ecological asset.
Campus landscapes—whether they are educational, medical, or corporate—should do more than just be pretty. We believe that they should embody the values of the Owner and include places where people can learn, rest, gather, and be inspired.
TRAILS & GREENWAYS
Connections between communities, people, and nature are important to people and their quality of life. We believe that a holistic and systemic approach to trail and greenway design helps us create unique experiences that do more that connect—they create memorable places.
URBAN DESIGN & PLANNING
Urban life is enriched by the diversity of architecture, civic spaces, streetscapes and the people who use them. We believe that engaging citizens in decision-making and understanding the natural and cultural systems that shape the place enable us to create meaningful urban spaces.
Compelling graphics are vital to creating and understanding design intent. We believe that our graphics—whether hand-drawn or computer-generated—effectively express design ideas and characteristics and give collaborators tools for fundraising, marketing, and educating others.
Our team consists of professionals with diverse backgrounds in shaping the built environment. We are committed to delivering excellence through each phase of a project from design through completion. More than anything we value relationships and proactively cultivate and maintain positive relationships internally, with our collaborators, and with the broader community.
