click for larger image   We have been recognized with twenty five architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and planning awards at the local, regional, and national levels. Our honors include the coveted American Institute of Architects award for Excellence in Urban Design for the design and implementation of the East Cambridge Riverfront Plan. Begun in 1976, this project has been hailed as a "National Model" redevelopment of a 40 acre former industrial riverfront into a thriving mixed use district.

Equally important to our design skills is the proven ability to guide our projects successfully through the public review process with efficiency and creativity. Our firm has represented both public and private sectors in their city, town, or village approval process. We have incorporated experience from the approval process into our project approach, and clients benefit from this accumulated knowledge both in terms of time and cost
