w/purpose is a multidisciplinary design studio curious about our built environment and its future. For us, this means neighborhoods and buildings; the experience of our streetscapes; or the spaces where people shop and spend their time. We are a studio that explores the interrelationships between those elements, their meaning, and how to make them better. Loosely defined…our process considers the interface of creative analysis on one hand and the process of building on the other; a design collaborative fixed on delivering ideas about how we live and what our future may look like. We call this design with purpose - here is why

The best ideas are always discovered by simply questioning convention, a sure way to introduce new ways to solve obvious challenges. and are great to attach to grants or tax credit applications.

The concept of multidisciplinary thinking is not new. It means having the creativity and team to analyze your urban design problems concurrently by creating the type of clarity important in developing not just buildings...but the space between two buildings... We call this type of design w/purpose...because it is
