Design Philosophy

An effective design process is built on an open, collaborative relationship between architect and client. Rather than trying to impose our will on our clients, we listen carefully to what they are trying to achieve, then create solutions that address their identified needs.

At SE/Coady, we encourage our clients to be deeply involved throughout the design and construction process.
The buildings we design must not only satisfy their intended function. In a broader sense, they should give expression to the defining character of our clients’ businesses.
At SE/Coady, we believe that every project, even the smallest of jobs, should have some inherent quality that makes it genuinely special.
