CIVIC / CULTURAL
Through a collaborative process with an institution and a community, we mine the natural, historical and cultural context to find the unique threads that bind a community together and enrich the human experience. In our designs, we seek to reinforce how a community uses public or spiritual space to express its unique culture, values and highest aspirations. Our Civic and Cultural projects have been honored with national design awards such as Faith & Form, an annual design awards program co-sponsored by Faith & Form Magazine and the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture.
“The design reflects the region’s vernacular sense of architectural space and materials. The detailing is exceptional, achieving harmony with an economy of means. The design addresses what is most needed, and nothing more - the essence of Quaker spirituality.”
