Environmental Learning

We design sustainable environments that respond to purpose and place, enhance the visitor experience, and forge connections with nature, and include visitor centers, environmental education and interpretive centers, camps, and outdoor recreation.


Creating Experiences
Design with nature enables personal immersion and discovery, shaped by sensitively placed and scaled buildings, an integrated response to wind and sun, use of native materials, and elegant form.

Connecting to Place
An understanding of the cultural and natural history leads to a cognitive sense of place, while experiencing natural communities through various activities, seasons, weather, day and night, creates a visceral sense of place. By design, connections are forged.

Ecological Stewardship
Designing in harmony with nature promotes clean air, clean water, and thriving plant and animal communities while creating economic viability.
