DESIGN PHILOSOPHY


Slider
At Lowney, we approach every project with an open mind.

Our work is rooted in its environment. We take clues from the past, but our buildings are grounded in the present with an eye to the future. For example, our interest in prefabricated construction is a direct result of looking ahead to more productive, resource-efficient methods for meeting community needs.

Architecture often embodies contradictions that can only be resolved through the collective experience of the team.  With master planning, landscape design, interiors, and architecture under one roof, we take a comprehensive view of our projects. This approach often extends beyond the office to include the local community, city staff, expert consultants, and user groups whose insights lend the projects depth and authenticity.  

Once the data points are collected, we approach the design from several directions, employing an iterative process that explores wide possibilities, evaluates their merits, then refines the options to arrive at an appropriate and well-considered resolution. This process provides a framework to explore innovative solutions knowing that at the end of the day, we will land on a pragmatic, constructible solution.

Our offices are located at the heart of the cities where they reside. While our work extends to locations outside and around cities, our focus on urban infill expresses our commitment to a reduced-carbon future, where walkability, shared resource use, and efficient infrastructure can diminish our impact on the environment while creating lively and engaging urban environments.
