Curtis Miner Architecture Design Approach

Design Approach

Our unique design approach begins with careful listening and learning about our clients’ needs which includes social, historical, political and physical design context. We organize the project team early. The best partnering comes when this team consists of client and user representatives, contractors, government officials, community and other involved stakeholders.  This inclusive team invites the best collaborative thinking and input. We synthesize data and develop architectural design solutions based on input from the project team which translates into consensus building around a single solution. We prepare clear and precise documents that facilitate efficient and trouble-free construction. We are successful when our clients are successful.
