DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

We focus on providing design services that reinforce the client and users’ needs and vision. Our goal is to design buildings and sites that are healthy and energy efficient places to work and live in. We have extensive experience in complex building types with unique code and project requirements, and we continually expand our knowledge base in the building sciences.

Our universal approach to design puts a strong emphasis on developing the site and surrounding environment in order to incorporate programmatic, climatic, and aesthetic needs, thus creating a responsive solution to each individual design challenge. Site and building design are integrated in order to limit site impacts and to orient programmatic spaces to flow logically, respond to solar orientation and optimize site development with local code frameworks.

We prefer a team approach to the design and construction for many of our projects. Collaboration between contractors, engineers and various trades has proven to be a successful process for both the construction and budgeting of projects. This team approach optimizes the integration of key operational elements into the design at an early stage. LA uses the latest REVIT Architecture software for design and coordination.
