DESIGN APPROACH

CULTURE EVOLVES FORM

􀂃 We identify the site’s and/or projects “DNA” to cultivate the building blocks necessary for positive growth and interaction. In every case, the projects unique location (culture-demographics) is key to long-term economic and cultural prosperity.

 

􀂃 We look at problems as hidden opportunities to create unique solutions.

􀂃 Our ability to extrapolate the essence in each project balanced with a dose of reality is the challenge which we strive for project issues, hence ensuring timely, creative and strategic solutions.
