San Pedro Square, San Jose and Mid-Market Street (Tenderloin) occupy nodes or points at which various social uses intersect - uses that are not detectable from an aerial photo but only understood from the ground.
We are dedicated to building a better future. And so questions play a large part in solutions to the building skin and the environment provided for its occupants. We take environmental concerns seriously. Therefore we have to ask:
NASA Ames Sustainability Base, Mountain View, CA and GE Software, San Ramon, CA are both projects that reflect a commitment to integrating technologies - both "high" and "low" - into a durable solution.

ASSET RICH / INCOME POOR - part 2 [design]
Historic buildings provide a foundation for the regeneration of many of our towns and cities. Regenerating these buildings can reinforce a sense of community, make an important contribution to the local economy and act as a catalyst for improvements to the wider area.
New uses are allowed and sensitive adaptations facilitated, when the original use of a historic building is no longer relevant or viable.
The focus is design innovation through emerging technologies. Designs are located at the INTERSECTION of:
Program, Strategy and fun.
Research and Creativity
Technological and Adaptive Ecologies
Lightness, Precision and Movement
Most of our projects focus on re-invention, integration of social values and ideas that move forward boldly.
Design is a strategically insightful decision - it makes CONNECTIONS. In this pursuit, integral to the design approach is an avid belief in spatial exploration and ideas about communication.
