Purpose: We are here to challenge conventional thinking about the built environment and empower communities to build stronger neighborhoods. We do that with design. We do that with development. We do that with people in mind and communities at heart.
URBAN REVITALIZATION VISION
We are passionate about bringing innovative, high quality design and strategy to the local level to improve urban neighborhoods. We believe each new or renewed building has the potential to catalyze future improvements in the surrounding community.
COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
We are among the very few minority-owned architecture and planning firms serving the Boston area. Our leadership is 100% minority. Our culture supports the hiring and professional development of minorities, women, and young professionals, and encourages teaming with minority and women-owned subcontractors. Our goal is to reach at least 50% MBE/WBE subcontractor participation on every project. We truly enjoy collaborating with diverse project teams and appreciate diversity on the client side as well.
We are committed to delivering a superior client experience through the integrity of our people and quality of our work.
INTEGRATED SUSTAINABLE DESIGN
We take full advantage of opportunities for sustainability and energy efficiency throughout the design process.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EXPERTISE
We know how to engage community members in an authentic way and work with local officials to get projects moving and keep them on track while respecting the needs of multiple stakeholders.
