Seeing the housing crisis in both Seattle and San Francisco, it was clear design and development has the ability to impact and improve those issues in our community. After working on market-rate housing, I wanted to help create more supportive housing.
The level of enthusiasm across the design studio is consistent in shared values behind the importance of what we do: impact on our environment, impact on our community, and even engagement with public policy. It makes me excited about coming to work because people really do care. It means something to them. Sustainability is not just talked about at LMSA but implemented as a backbone of the project design.
