Our Philosophy

About Us

Since the start of our practice in 1979, The Design Partnership's core ideology, has been that great architecture goes beyond a beautifully designed façade. We pride ourselves in our ability to build lifelong relationships with our clients, to understand their aspirations, needs, and goals fully, and to provide solutions that are innovative, cost-effective and functional.

We pair our expertise with creative yet sensitive problem-solving. At the Design Partnership, we believe that collaboration and responsiveness lead to design solutions that not only satisfy but will consistently exceed our client's expectations.

Sustainable Design

The Design Partnership is a passionate supporter of environmental stewardship. We believe that sustainable building practices should be the rule and not the exception.

We promote sustainable building design to increase energy efficiency, water efficiency, enhanced air quality, and selecting products that are non-toxic, rapidly-renewable, or recycled/recyclable. Our firm makes it a priority to raise our clients' awareness of the benefits of building green in terms of the savings achieved in energy use and increased productivity and satisfaction of staff and customers.
