How We Work

We balance a rational planning method with a healthy dose of intuition. Whether the project is a small residential courtyard or a more expansive city corridor plan, fundamental planning strategies underpin each step of the design process. With the smaller project, design steps may overlap and become more of an intuitive exercise, but the basic questions still resonate.

“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”          -John Muir

  • Who are the intended users of the space and what are the intended uses?
     

  • What are the physical, social, and cultural assets and what are the challenges of the site?
     

  • What are the budget considerations now and for future maintenance?
     

  • How will the users feel in the space when complete?
