Our work has been recognized for its dedication to engaging, improving, and honoring public space. We design in conversation with the environment. We work to understand a context, and plan with community in mind. We challenge ourselves to face the array of complex design problems and commit to solutions that forward a healthy and sustainable future.


We work at all scales. Whether designing public plazas and parks, intergenerational community centers or large-scale, affordable housing complexes, our approach leverages the contributions of public and private partners to create spaces that promote both physical and economic wellness for the entire community.
