Project Types

Civic & Cultural

Venues of distinction embrace local character and context, drawing people together for key civic moments. Increasingly, we see our civic and cultural clients leveraging sustainable design to reflect community values, and our design teams find innovative ways to express each venue’s community. We enhance urban environments by integrating interior design, architecture, open spaces and streetscapes through sustainable strategies. In each project, we create places noted for building community and celebrating culture.

What Kinds of Places Draw People Together?

Architects are place makers—albeit across a vast range of scale, context and type—but nonetheless, we design places for people to inhabit and enjoy.
