It’s all in the details!
Quite often it is the overall scale and massing of a project that firsts grabs our attention but it is the details that defines the appropriateness of a project. What is appropriate in South Florida or the Bahamas is often not appropriate in New York, Tennessee, Texas, or the Florida Panhandle and visa versa, however good design and attention to regionally appropriate details and climate constraints will always be appropriate.
Styles go in and out of fashion, because they are mostly decorative. Good design however will rarely go out of fashion, because it is based upon a series of principles, proportions and an attention to details that has been developed over time.
A project’s vision often starts with the historic, natural, architectural and contextual influences of the sites surroundings. We work to develop a strong sense of place through the projects scale and details. Creating a place that is unique and memorable typically comes from paying attention to these details and attention to the human scale.
Design, in the end, is about creating better things for people; the process begins with inspiration from our client’s goals, site constraints, a region’s historic context, and the potential of what could be. Most important is attention to detail.
The details are not just the details – they collectively make the design.
