This philosophy is evidenced through our history of successful projects. Throughout each project, we emphasize understanding our clients’ unique challenges, mission, and vision. The better our understanding, the better we are able to manage our partners’ efforts and provide clients with the greatest balance of knowledge and the strongest end product.
As architects and planners we look ahead to what can be. An idea becomes a design concept. A design concept becomes a set of drawings. And a set of drawings becomes a new building. It is our job to understand the impact of that building on its environment, now and over time. We look ahead ten years, twenty years, fifty years to understand the impact of that building over time. Buildings are not constructed in vacuums. They are surrounded by other structures, by green spaces, by communities, by history. Each one is a story, with a past to be considered and a future to be shaped. Our job is to integrate the past sensitively and to influence the future responsibly.
As expressed by our loyal client base, our firm has been characterized as providing superior design services, outstanding project management, thorough project research, stringent cost control management, and in-depth knowledge of building codes and construction technology. Additionally, in every project, KANN Partners seeks to form solid alliances with other experienced and talented service providers who complement our team on specific projects. These partnerships allow us to excel in our work and provide our clients with the best architecture and project management available.
Historic buildings have been a key focus of our architectural services since our founding and is at the heart of our philosophy that architecture is more than a pretty building – it is a response to the past and the future of the building and the space in which it exists.
