Boston architecture firm dedicated to offering clients a high level of design and services, providing creative architectural solutions on time & within budget.
We work collaboratively with the client and stakeholders to translate our clients’ aspirations into imaginative architectural solutions, attacking complex programs, mastering diﬃcult schedules and limited budgets. Uncovering hidden opportunities and converting shortcomings into advantages are how we add the most value for a client.
Our standard specification is LEED compliant. Environmental responsibility and “best use” principles are important elements of our practice. We actively engage the full design team (structural, mechanical, lighting, landscape, civil, cost control, environmental, and specialty consultants), the client, and the contractor from beginning to end, to achieve creative, sustainable, cost-eﬀective, and well-managed projects.
We define context broadly. Our definition includes institutional, architectural, historic, urban, and environmental aspects. This calls for developing a contemporary architectural response to each building project in an intentional manner and not resorting to stylistic pastiche or historical formulas.
