Human beings spend most of their personal and professional time within the built environment. As architects, we create the spaces and places where people live their life. How we learn, work, eat, sleep, heal, worship, and gather are all improved by the quality of the space and place. Our quality of life is greatly impacted. It is, therefore, critical that we keep this most basic and essential thought at the forefront of our practice: We Design for Life.
At Holly & Smith Architects, our culture is a culture of design. A culture that understands that great design enriches people’s lives and nurtures a passion for living. We know from experience that the best designs are those that are the result of an empathetic and collaborative process. To arrive at this level of empathy, we engage in an open dialogue and collaboration with our clients. Furthermore, this philosophy requires an acute awareness of our impact on our environment. Sustainable design is, at its essence, the Design for Life. Understanding the climatic conditions of a place informs our design as we search for a site’s unique aspects of celebrating and enhancing those qualities. After all, when we Design for Life, all life is better.
We provide sustainable, regionally-responsive architecture, master planning, and interior design through a culture of design and a collaborative process to achieve innovative solutions.
Our Ethos: Thoughtful design enriches peoples’ lives and nurtures a passion for living. WE DESIGN FOR LIFE.
