The firm’s projects fall in four primary market sectors: academic, civic + cultural, commercial, and aviation + transit. Our work includes comprehensive architectural services, interior design, planning, sustainable design, and historic preservation characterized by well-crafted, thoughtfully detailed designs that respect their sites and strengthen their context.


We aspire to design net-positive solutions through healthy, efficient, and adaptive spaces that are responsive to our clients, the environment, and the people who use them. The result is a net-positive outcome for the greater community. As a JUST™ Organization, we are passionate about making a positive contribution to our greater environment and the human situation through designing places where people gather, work, live, and recreate. Our design approach is grounded in our core values, and uses a collaborative process with principals, associates and interns working together in an open studio.


This approach has resulted in more than 50 design awards, including national, regional, and local recognition. In the past year, we worked on the designs of our largest, most sustainable projects to date, by our most diverse staff to date; these accomplishments are reflected in our debut at No. 31 on the Architect 50, being named one of the 100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon by Oregon Business, and receiving the AIA Northwest and Pacific Region firm award.
