Menil Collection, Houston; architect Renzo Piano
Who we are...
Our office of eight staff are all architects and architecture students, graduates and interns, from a variety of education and experience backgrounds, prior office experience, and project and client types. We each provide personal and engaged involvement directly with your design teams on a regular basis throughout the design and documentation phases. We strive to build confidence through experience in our intern staff, with all staff participating in the specifications process at each level of development.
"The construction process begins with bidders who may not be aware of your vision; they gain insight and understand your design intent only through the quality of the project's documentation. Clear and precise communication is the means to ensure your design intent is known, understood and executed to completion."
Detailing the interconnections between surfaces, components and materials is the essence of good design thinking: (top banner) Houston, (above from top) San Francisco, Montevideo, Rome, Helsingborg, Miami, Tacoma, Berlin, Montevideo.
