THE SPACE  
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.  



UNLOCKING SOCIO-URBAN PATTERNS

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:

  •  What are “smart buildings” and “smart cities/campuses” and what is the role of technology in achieving these?
  • Which approach lends itself better to achieving a resilient space over time.

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.

​INFRASTRUCTURE 

THE OUTCOMES
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.
