The trick is taking those design challenges and using them in a positive way

Multifamily Housing

With design credits of more than 12,000 units of multifamily housing, there is little within the building type that we have not encountered. Our clientele is as diverse as individual projects, including private clients, municipal and public housing authorities, and a wide variety of non-profit organizations. Through our years of experience, we have become specialists in developing aesthetically pleasing, intelligently designed, economical architectural solutions for multifamily housing, including detached, attached, multi-story, or mid rise buildings.

Historic Preservation

One of our primary focuses is on the preservation of historic buildings. We do more than simply restore old buildings or rehabilitate them for new uses; historic preservation is a philosophy derived from years of experience about how to respect the architectural integrity of historic buildings. Through an architectural historian lens, we look at history in different ways and ask different questions of the past, teaching us new things about our history and culture. We transmit our understanding of the past to future generations through our historic preservation activities. As historic preservation architects, we have been trained to recognize and to respect the idiosyncrasies that define a place. We understand the methods of analysis of cultural heritage and the identification of historic fabric and character-defining features o determine a building’s significance and value.

Our Mission

To develop innovative architectural and design solutions by listening and understanding the needs of our clients and communities.
