Community Impact

Purpose-driven buildings bring people together in many ways and on many scales to inspire and foster human engagement - within single structures or entire neighborhoods, or between nations.

Fostering Community

Mars Center for Science and Technology

Wheaton College

Connectivity of people and ideas was a guiding principle throughout the design process of the Mars Center. The facility provides a variety of inviting spaces that students and faculty can call their own, sparking serendipitous interactions that bring arts and sciences closer together to inspire intellectual inquiry.

New Model for Healing

The new Stamford Hospital is the boldest healthcare initiative in Fairfield County's history. Stamford's new building is more than a state-of-the-art facility: it symbolizes their philosophy of patient- and family-centered care. Healing begins as soon as you arrive at the hospital. This is Healing Reimagined, as told by the Stamford leadership team.

Well-Being

Science is a Human Endeavor

Loyola Science Center

University of Scranton

The most powerful scientific tool is the human mind, especially when it collaborates with others. This interdisciplinary facility is designed around non-lab learning spaces that are comfortable, inviting, and promote interaction, compelling faculty to redefine how they think of and use learning spaces, and reconceive how they educate students.
