We approach architecture as a unique response to a particular site, program and client’s needs. Buildings should be easy to understand and appropriate for their use. Vitruvius’ description from classical antiquity of the tripartite ideal of “commodity, firmness and delight” still rings true.
Good architecture brings life to space through the interaction of sight, sound, touch, and smell. Physical comfort, a sense of shelter and prospect, an orientation to the outside world, and psychological well-being all help to create an environment that uplifts one’s spirit and provides a nurturing, healing environment.
