We live life in buildings, but buildings shouldn’t dictate how we live.
We specialize in designing people places, not spaces. People places have the ability to positively affect creativity, productivity and well-being. Work, play and everyday life all happens in structures, so by putting them at the very heart of what we do we can leave a lasting impact.
And as the world around us constantly evolves, we pride ourselves on progressing with these changes. From technology to infrastructure and the way people work and live, we continue to pioneer places that inspire people to live better.
Successful design not only looks impressive, but it also has the power to transform lives. Our focus is fulfilling the potential of places to positively impact people’s lives.
Enhancing quality of life is at the core of every environment we create, and we achieve this by considering everything from the surrounding areas’ cultures to the natural environment, context and history. We listen to the landscape to make intelligent, sustainable decisions and beautiful design solutions.
Our strategic services span from the initial concept to effectively planning and realizing this vision, including:

With the passing of John C. Portman, Jr. in 2017 at the age of 93, Atlanta lost one of her greatest champions.
Mr. Portman’s vision and leadership were instrumental in Atlanta’s growth into a major international city, as he went on to have a similar impact on other cities throughout the world.
