Our commercial clients come to us for our skill in distilling their goals and translating them to built form.
These may be workplaces, where we pay attention to how groups and individuals come together. These are also multifamily developments, where we skillfully differentiate the public-facing realm from private areas. And they are places of accommodation, where we focus keenly on the boundaries and overlaps among public and private space.
In all cases we develop an attitude toward the material, detail, and design character that best suits our clients’ ambitions.
Reasserting the here and now, which is the antidote to placelessness and homogeneity, demands absolutely that one avoid predictability. To bring out the here, something might have to be quite unexpected, jarring us into the moment, asserting the now.Deborah Berke, Founding Principal
