We are a Midwest design firm. We are rooted in a landscape of functional sculptures and relentless organic rhythms of crops all bounded by a Cartesian grid and where nearly anything can be fixed with the proper application of baling wire. It is a simple model.
Our studio is intended to speak of this place in a way that does not cartoon the ideals we wish to reflect, but instead use deferential references that as an assembly will result in significance that is architecture - elevating the expectations of ourselves and acceptance of our clients. It is a simple goal.
The studio is open. There are no offices, no rooms with doors except for the toilets. This is how we work and learn. It is a simple system.
There is a place to make coffee. It’s that simple.
