tékʰnɛ - “the rational method followed in artistic making”
We are dedicated to the ideal that architecture is the transformation of an existing environment into a meaningful place. Making a place meaningful requires good listening and responsive design and planning. Making of place requires that the ideals and goals of our clients are reflected in the constructed environment; and that this environment has integrity. Environments made for our clients have many common characteristics; the site and building are in harmony, the chosen means and methods of construction are thoroughly researched and expertly detailed, the interiors have a rational identity, and a reassuring character. These places balance the ideals of resource conservation, energy efficiency, and sustainability with the realities of performance criteria (durability), constructability and budget.
