Accompanying the pragmatic responsibilities of function, schedule, and cost is the intangible obligation to create an aesthetically pleasing design. Our concern is not to promote a particular “style”, but to discover a specific direction that is appropriate to each individual project. A refined simplicity achieved through scale, proportion and balance is characteristic of our design approach.
