Retail + Placemaking

Our approach to Placemaking employs experts from all aspects of “Place Design” - from retail strategists and brand designers to architects and planners, signage and lighting designers and landscape architects.

Our Placemaking approach to projects is a strategic, artful and collaborative process aimed at creating the best possible environments that capitalize on market opportunities. It is a holistic sum of curated details involving collective expertise from all aspects of Place Creation and Brand Design. We initiate and quarterback the strategy for our clients, weaving together retail and ground floor space activation with the programming of public spaces in between. More broadly, we develop, design and express the soul of the place in every detail – from architecture, landscape, lighting, and signage to art programs. The results are vibrant and flexible places that host social interactions and become everyone’s favorite place. Our designs become the canvas on which communities live, work, shop and are entertained.  Our places are measured not in feet and inches, but in moments and memories.
