Our new paradigms for living range from transit-oriented infill development to innovative adaptive reuse, creating sustainable communities that energize residents and neighbors alike. We make better places for people to LIVE.
Our RENEW practice embraces sustainability, equity, and safe, healthy living to transform existing buildings to be respectful of the past, relevant today, and resilient for many tomorrows. Through repair, renovation, repositioning, retrofitting and adaptive reuse, we have a commitment to existing buildings for their role in preserving material, energy, and cultural fabric.
To ENGAGE is to come together and take part. Our higher education and institutional designs support engagement and public participation in the broad range of places where people gather. We create environments that enrich communities, lift the spirit, and stimulate learning. To ENGAGE is to inspire involvement – through our programming processes and design solutions, with our clients, and for an equitable built environment.
To SUSTAIN is to create enduring value by fostering physical and social resilience. Embracing climate, health and equity as fundamental drivers of design, we have pioneered high-performance. Our integrated design process establishes project-specific targets based on context and program. Whether seeking to achieve certification or demonstrate compliance, we are able to analyze and iterate, find synergies, and help make informed decisions.
To see a place as it can be tomorrow, motivates us to INNOVATE. For decades, we have been driven to integrate leading-edge technologies into our designs – through research-based design, driving construction costs down, dramatically reducing energy usage, and “right-sizing” to get projects built. We INNOVATE to add value.
