Community + Civic
Great design belongs in the public domain.
How do you design public spaces that make all walks of life feel like they belong? By trying on a bunch of different shoes. Our team has extensive project experience while serving in the public sector, providing invaluable insights and creating efficiencies throughout each step of the design process. By being deeply involved in the communities we live in while diligently working to understand the communities of others, we know what kind of environments connect people to the things they need and connect more profoundly to one another.
