Who we are
We are an inter-disciplinary design firm focused on mixed use, hospitality, and planned community development. In our integrative approach, we bring together the diverse creative and technical skills of the project team and channel the energy, imagination and knowledge of our clients, staff and consultants to develop design solutions which are both meaningful and practical for a range of project types.
Our success is due in part to our personal commitment to the success of each project. Our responsiveness to the needs of our clients, and our understanding of the many detailed aspects of planning and development issues have helped us to build lasting relationships with our clientele and resulted in numerous repeat customers and referrals.
Our clients reflect the business landscape of the Pacific Rim. They include financially successful individuals, private developers and investors, resort operators, international real estate investment trusts, municipalities and governmental agencies, and corporations both within the U.S. and abroad.
Although our clients are unusually diverse, they share some common traits. They are leaders in their industries and communities and they expect excellent service from their design consultants. In this light, we strive to adhere to several principles:
We listen to our clients. Our purpose is to understand their objectives at all points during a project and especially during the planning, programming and project definition phase.
We endeavor to be knowledgeable about the operations of our clients and the values which guide their decisions. Our design solutions add value to their operations and reflect their business or personal goals.
We evaluate a variety of possible design and management solutions with our clients. The solutions we develop are elegant, affordable, and add value. They integrate the often complex criteria for large scale projects and the values and concerns of the historical, social, and environment context in which the projects occur.
We strive to integrate our clients into the dynamic of the design team in a way that is appropriate to the needs of the client and to provide immediate access to our team’s expertise and resources.
We are personally involved and familiar with the style and approach of each client, available to consult with them.
