What we do

DESIGN
We believe that the design of human experience trumps object-making and the designer’s ego. Our projects range from conceptual feasibility to constructed realities, and we approach each with the same openness, commitment, and vigor.

We know that the built environment has a profound impact on all of us, and we are committed to the use of applied technologies and materials in the service of a better, smarter way.

We believe that the traditional value proposition of architecture must now transform - to acknowledge the demands of our rapidly evolving world and to gain new relevance by impacting positive change.

STRATEGY
We believe that good strategy is good design. We bring decades of problem-solving knowledge to our partnerships with institutions, non-profits, colleague firms, owners and developers. Our experience ranges from programming, project feasibility, entitlements and facilities management to workflow/ workplace analysis. We customize processes to address the specific concerns of our clients and to generate tools that empower decision makers.

We are committed to data systems analysis, visualization and optimization strategies in the service of all our deliverables, and believe that our partnerships must result in measurable results for our clients.

Philosophy

DE+ provides architecture, design and strategic consulting for the built environment. We believe that enhancing our individual clients’ organizational and business objectives is primary, and therefore our value in creating appropriate solutions will take many forms. The most successful design solutions are created through diverse and productive partnerships, which render our clients and colleagues genuine collaborators.

DE+ is the product of long friendships, shared ideals and common goals. We share over 6 decades of professional experience in design and consulting for project feasibility, master planning, architecture and interiors. Further, we are committed to personal and professional development through teaching, interdisciplinary collaboration, research and mentorship.

We believe that design is about creating value - for our clients, for society, and for the environment. Our DNA is architecture, which forms the basis for the thinking we apply to solving complex systems. We ask hard questions and expect the answers to defy even our best intuition. We believe in measurable results and rely on data- and technology-driven processes to push outcomes.
