Reflections on Design

About Design Development

Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not simpler.
Albert Einstein

At center is a key question:
How might you bring the most value to and from limited resources, optimizing the values of your property, your investments, your business and its operations?

The best answers warrant extensive design inquiry, and will include determination, well-informed proposals, layers of study, illustration & refinement and often modeling. Iterations and re-iterations -- until there is strong a sense of fulfilled requirements. And, of course, a wow!

Anything less, and continued design development is called for.

Commercial and industrial parcels will generally yield top return on investment when developed to ‘their highest and best use’ - but what is that really? That official zoning distinction defines a volume of space that can be improved for a specific use. Optimal return is powered by a host of other criteria that drive your own assessment of best use while assuring your requirements and desired outcomes are fully met.

Our work consistently reveals value propositions that have been overlooked or under-examined. Design development is an iterative process that is often halted before the most illuminating questions have been asked – providing advantage to those who press for elegant solutions and the rewards found there.

We take pride in deeply examining the variables, the absolutes, the possibilities and your desires – even those you think may be impossible to fulfill - consistently finding hidden value. Our track record shows we cast new light, with significant positive impact on your outcomes.

Your project outcomes and benefits beg for this degree of informed planning, which enables the elegant implementation that optimizes return on investment.

Reviewing desired outcomes, iterative design development and project models have consistently proven valuable in assuring client satisfaction: making the entire project more accessible, understandable and viable. These methods illuminate possibilities and consequences for your site or your project, for potential users and neighboring communities. Choices, preparation of detailed plans, specs and construction drawings, even team selection readily become more effective. All concerned parties can get more of what they want.

All things are easy to understand, once they are discovered. The point is to discover them.
Galileo 1564-1642
