Strengthening Placemaking Project

We believe that the best possible design outcome is achieved through an informative and collaborative relationship with our clients and community. Once of our strengths is to involve our clients in a process of exploration and innovation that meets community needs. We are informed and inspired by the past and present history, natural landscape, and understanding the needs of current and future user groups of the area.

Community engagement is a powerful design resource, and this premise is at the core of our practice, below are just a few examples.
