Functional Programming is the Needs Analysis stage of every project. It’s the exercise of asking questions like: “How”, “Why” and “What if?” By asking the right questions and not accepting the current state, we provide inventive solution. Thoughtful and creative Functional Programming can improve efficiency, effectiveness and cost control, while informing your future Interior Design or Architectural project.
Innovation is at the foundation of our practice. We know that best practices in design evolve over time, consequently we strive to be on the leading edge of design innovation, exploring new ideas and improving on those ideas, project after project. By using research evidence in our design considerations, we can empirically predict the impact of our solutions on the environments we create. Beyond employing the research of others, we are active participants in original research. We are continually looking to investigate research questions which could have an impact on the interior environment. Over the course of our careers, we have been engaged in original research in the areas of Geriatric Facility Design, Rehabilitation Design Principles, Design for the Dementia Population, and Workplace Design practices. Research excites our inquisitive minds, allows us to prove our design hypothesis, and contributes to the global body of knowledge in the design field.
