Atkin Olshin Schade Architects approaches each project with the understanding that successful design grows from the specifics of the site, context, and the needs and aspirations of the users, rather than from preconceived architectural ideas. We are committed to designing buildings and sites that are appropriate to and enrich their place, and that support the communities that use them. A member of the United States Green Building Council, the firm is committed to following sustainable practices in its design work. For each project, we study and test given space and circulation requirements, carefully analyze the natural and contextual features of the site, and thoroughly study the human and organizational needs of the client to generate the design and realize the fullest potential of the project. Our aim is to create a beautifully designed project that also achieves scheduling, budget and programmatic goals.
