Welcome to our Charlotte studio

We thrive off the energy and creativity of our diverse team. Together, we challenge the status quo, helping to shape the Queen City’s architectural fabric by designing meaningful, memorable places. Human connections delight us: they have the power to transform a person’s experience in a built environment. That’s why we design spaces that encourage “productive collisions”—to enhance people’s experiences with each another and the place they’re in.

We are inspired by the fabric and culture of the communities we serve.
“I'm still new to the firm and to the Charlotte studio—I haven't even been here a full year yet—and it already feels like home. This is what working should be.”

—Tommy Dew, Senior Project Architect
