Philosophy

MISSION.

We believe in the transformative power of community. Our creativity makes vibrant communities possible through the design of thoughtful, inspired spaces that foster a sense of belonging, safety, accountability and awe. That's our mission at KSQ.

VALUES.

We believe in thoughtful study.

Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of how design affects human connections. We know that good solutions can only come from a thorough definition of the problem; therefore, we seek first to understand before being understood–and value the process of discovery.

We believe in collaboration.

We value a participatory design process, knowing a great idea can come from anyone at the table. This ensures that pride of authorship is shared by everyone–from the client to the newest member of the team.

We believe in good design.

Innovation and creativity are at the core of who we are and what we do. We bring creative solutions to every angle of a project–and look at old problems in new ways that affect how people experience our buildings.
