We are convinced that people need spaces with a conscientiousness. More than ever, architecture must play a role in bettering our world.
We are creating Sierra to respond to this need, for people and brands that need spaces with meaning -- spaces that are responsible and joyous.
We care about making diverse, healthy places for people. We care about honoring your story through the art of building. We know that contextual integration and the source materials of your project will reveal innovative solutions.
We understand that beauty must be functional. Respect for nature and resilient responses to climatic issues are imperative.
We are specialists in our values and generalists in our practice. We work within the realm of architecture and urban design (with collaborators from artists to engineers).
No project is too small or too big, but must resound with meaning and purpose.
We work with clients and collaborators that share this sensitive & hopeful spirit to make successful built projects. Any great project has a mission, and we actively accompany our partners throughout the design process - from early concept development through built completion - to discover how good design can achieve that mission. We like to play the role of “architectural activists” for your mission.
