Context matters. We start by gaining a deep understanding of the history and fabric of the site and surrounding neighborhood to ensure we know its deepest stories, challenges, and dreams. In addition to history, we study science, market research, data, technology, art and culture in order to develop our vision, and to create authentic streets, active retail, modern buildings, beautiful offices and residences which together form dynamic neighborhoods that become sought after destinations.
