Perkins Eastman creates sustainable and unique buildings and places that respond to their settings, reflect the local context, and become part of the cultural landscape. Whether we are designing waterfronts or public parks, redeveloping downtown areas or entire residential developments with complementary retail and commercial components, our design teams are always mindful to maintain this high standard of design. Through our designs, we emphasize how buildings work together to create great urban places and ultimately benefit the public realm. We design for the pedestrian experience, we instill long term value, and we strive to bring transformative ideas to fruition in the built environment. This process begins by orchestrating teams to creatively balance complex technical requirements, resulting in designs that transcend individual uses, achieve a unique coherence, and produce long term economic value.
We begin each project with an eagerness to learn about the essential characteristics of “place,” free of preconceived images or formulas. Our collaborative approach is focused on how each room, building, street or space can be designed to capture distinct qualities and opportunities. We seek consensus in our process within the design and client team and ensure that key issues are resolved before proceeding to the next phase. This first phase is critical to establishing credibility and value in the marketplace, delivering the highest standard of quality to the project brand, and ensuring the ideal setting for subsequent phases.
