Principal architect Angela Dean discusses the creative process
We are members of your team with you as the captain. Our role is to listen, understand, and provide guidance in order to translate your dreams into reality. We understand that each project is unique, every site is different, and each client deserves individual attention. Rather than presenting a trademark style, we provide site-specific design responses that are appropriate to climate, context, and our client's design style.
Problem solving and design excellence are the products of many people in several disciplines working together as a team. Applying this collaborative approach is more than collecting the appropriate skills; it entails establishing a clear line of communication between the client, design team, and contractor early in the design process. By using this participatory approach, we ensure efficient use of time and coordination between disciplines which contributes to detailed record keeping. This can be a major factor in the successful execution of a design.
