The firm philosophy is that an open approach to design must be applied to each project. The design is the result of working with the client's needs, analyzing the characteristics of the site, and working within the project budget. There are, however, common elements that go into every design: The amount of  energy that goes into making and operating the building, the movement through the building, processional and kinetic forms, the convergence of materials and forms, and the use of light both natural and artificial to define the space.
