The spaces we occupy can affect thoughts, emotions, physical responses and even socioeconomic standing. We believe spaces, like your health and vehicles, require regular expert attention for optimal performance, particularly the performance of the occupants. Beyond major renovation or new construction, our expertise and input on the spaces you occupy everyday can help you live a more efficient, happier and healthier life.
Architects receive extensive training in design thinking which promotes empathy, teaches problem solving techniques, trains to develop various potential solutions, and instructs how to identify the solution most likely to work. In addition, architectural education embarks on a grueling journey of studies to understand design theory, architectural history, anthropology and sociology, building code research, accessibility, sustainable design, construction, cost analysis, structural and seismic design, and building systems — mechanical, electrical and plumbing design. Beyond developing construction drawings we have a wealth of knowledge to help you improve how you live, work and play.
In the home, our expertise and input transform spaces to places of serenity and inspiration. In the office we achieve strategic-level objectives and promote the culture of a company. In fact, studies reveal that buildings with quality design and healthy and sustainable features result in greater marketability and faster leasing and sales velocity, in some cases, commanding up to a 20 percent rent premium over market rate, in addition to savings on operational costs. We can even make recommendations on how to structure your space to improve fitness, games and entertaining. Below are a few examples, but there’s so much more that we can do to help you with your space. How can we help you improve?
