INTERPRETIVE WORK


Our Interpretive work is rooted in our unique 'place-based' approach to design. What are the stories that the plants and animals have to tell us about a particular site? What are the cultural legacies of the project's stakeholders that seek expression through the materials and relationships we explore between building and land? How might the forms of the landscape inspire and then in turn inform emerging design solutions that are as fitting as they are timeless?

Our governmental, tribal, and non-profit clients have ranged from Native American Nations to the USFWS, to city and county governments across the US. Our unique facilitation process is geared towards the vital participation of all stakeholders involved. We strongly believe in the role of the architect as consensus builder through an imaginative, inclusive approach to design.



Jeff  &  Matt really listened to the land, and took-to-heart the Tribe's history and needs.  This is truly a remarkable work that aesthetically, culturally, and environmentally addresses the past history, present needs, and future hopes of the Yavapai-Apache Nation.
