About EYP

Celebrating 50 years of being an interdisciplinary design firm specializing in higher education, government, healthcare, and science & technology. We begin every project by asking:

What’s Possible? 

Let’s shake the box, stretch your dreams, unpack ideas, and envision design in the context of something bigger. Because: 

We’re Curious Too. 

About you, where you’re going, and what you imagine. Striving to create an environment of partnership and trust, we want to meet your needs and then go beyond what’s expected. Bringing intuition and intellect to a creative process to uncover the possible in your project, let’s push past the impossible and ask: 

What Can Design Do To … 

Serve our Fellow Citizens? 

Enhance Campus Culture? 

Provide Better Patient Care? 

Support Research and Development? 

Our Design Philosophy

Design touches everything. Memorable designs create authentic experiences that enhance people’s lives and communities. Together with our clients, we design for people.

We hold ourselves accountable to:

  • Embrace Community to Reveal the Best Ideas
    We are a Community of Designers, where people and their backgrounds matter. We believe great design ideas can come from anywhere and anyone.
  • Explore Culture to Design for People
    Understanding your culture begins with listening and empathy. Engaging clients and communities leads to designs that enhance identity and foster relationships.
  • Unite Disciplines to Promote Performance
    Working together makes a difference. Our interdisciplinary teams drive design solutions that impact building performance and promote health and wellbeing.
  • Unleash Curiosity to Drive Discovery
    Curiosity motivates and energizes creativity. Creativity fuels innovative design.
  • Celebrate Craft to Elevate Our Environments
    We make spaces and places that endure. We champion technical skills, artistic intuition, and the spirit of materials to create experiences that connect and delight.
