In the Public Interest

Point of View

We promote thoughtful and inspired design that supports and encourages community involvement.

Cities and counties serve as strategists and stewards for buildings with tremendous community value. These are places to conduct important business, address legal matters, gather engaged citizens, train employees, and move community priorities forward.

Municipal buildings stand as beacons of community connection, where all are welcomed at the front door. We reflect their value in designs that are for the people and the common good.
