Cultural & Museums

We understand the unique challenges faced by museums and cultural institutions, who must find new and creative ways to engage their broader communities, creating spaces that bring together long time patrons with those whose first visit may be tomorrow night. 

They must expand the impact of their educational mission with specialized classrooms, meeting spaces, and maker spaces that serve the needs of a wide range of learners. And of course, they must do all of this within funding, scheduling, and spatial constraints.


This is exactly the kind of puzzle we love to solve.  In fact, our team has been doing it for more than 45 years.

One of our earliest projects was University of Pennsylvania’s Institute of Contemporary Art, and since then we’ve designed spaces for a wide range of clients including The Franklin Institute, the American Bible Society’s Faith and Liberty Center, and Johnson & Johnson.

As with any creative endeavor of this scale, we approach museum and cultural work as a truly collaborative process between our team and that of our clients and stakeholders. Together, we are able to build innovative and dynamic environments that support cultural institutions and museums to grow and serve their community both now and in the future.
