About us

NATIONAL DESIGN is driven by the unique opportunities and constraints of site specific projects which evolve through close relationships with clients, artists, and craftsmen. Each project is strengthened through these relationships, grounded in a strong consideration of site, material, and craft resulting in authentic and tactile buildings that aim to enrich their cultural landscape. The work spans a variety of project types, bridging the disciplines of art and architecture through collaborative design. The resulting projects maintain their individuality while retaining a coherent design thread as a complete body of work.
