Interior Design

Creating buildings that are beautiful inside and out! Our interior design department’s focus is to create custom spaces that transform your organization’s culture, goals, and values into an aesthetically pleasing space.

Strategic Master Planning

Our master planning services create a living document that aligns your communities’ or organizations’ goals with planning for growth with available resources strategically.

Feasibility Studies

Often the first step in a project, as a means to explore a project’s viability. We analyze relevant factors such as the site, program, codes, and aesthetic quality to help determine a budget.

Sustainable Design

Sustainable design initiatives are part of every project we work on. Our team has completed multiple LEED Certified buildings and even designed schools that score nationally in the top 5% in regards to energy efficiency.

Adaptive Re-Use

We love reinventing the use of an existing building while honoring the buildings it’s defining characters. While these buildings can be some of the most challenging, they are considered one of the greenest forms of sustainable design.
