What drew me here was the quality of the work, the rigor of the practice, and the people—good, smart, thoughtful people who create a respectful environment.

The partners are good at giving latitude for the rest of us to figure out the problem and the solution, which is rare. They’re unusually open to input. There’s a culture here that values keeping the client in the loop. And there’s definitely attention to craft—even in the affordable housing work, we get a fair amount of craft in there, despite the constraints.
