We believe in process as the first art. Great and wonderful architecture cannot be made without the clear vision and guidance of a provocative client working in critical unison with the aspiring architect. We employ collective rather than singular intelligence in the making of architecture. Our process is holistic involving many layers of information and participants at one time. We believe the core acts of the architect are the creative selection, organization, integration and articulation of systems about the ideas, ideals and daily use of the inhabitant. Our art is the discovery of external and internal logics derived from this exploration. It is the needs of the inhabitant, in the context of site circumstance, that lead to a masterful articulation and expression of landscape, light, materials and systems. The result is a vision that is unique.
