Our Approach?


Egos can't be left at the door because they don't exist here.

We're a full-service, collaborative Street Design Studio.

It's our mission to create pedestrian-centric spaces that encourage social interaction, connectivity and economic vitality.  In 2009, we began work in street design - Streets That Do More . Since then we've branched out, applying what we learned about the pedestrian experience to other spaces including office parks, mixed-use developments, parks and trails.  

We are casual observers, people watchers and advocates for Streets That Do More . That means we do our homework. We put in the time to consider all the possible angles and points of view a pedestrian might have, both literally and figuratively. We see the bigger picture, anticipating how to best address pedestrian needs through design and planning. Collecting all that data drives our creative process, giving us a strong foundation for when the time comes to put pen to paper and shovels to the ground.  


Our 12-person studio is comprised of Landscape Architects, Planners, Urban Designers and Information Architects.  As a strategic partner we work how you work. We work hard to help you see the potential that we see when we look at a street or space.  We specialize in projects of any size and understand the importance of flexibility. Whether we're joining an ongoing project or handling it from day one, we're ready to jump in and take your project to the next level.
