    Lechmere Canal, fountain and surrounding development
click for larger image   Every site has inherent design possibilities and unrealized connections to its surroundings that begin to establish a framework for successful new development. A site's potential is also optimized by incorporating appropriate building imagery, and by thoughtful programming and massing. Creating -- or contributing to -- adjacent public amenities builds additional value, recognition and acceptance.

We enjoy helping clients find solutions for complex, demanding sites subject to cultural, historical, environmental, political, or recreational requirements. We have responded with innovative, yet logical and understandable plans that satisfy and excite all parties involved. No two of our projects look alike; each is customized to match our client's needs and desires.
