We believe the best design process is an ongoing, engaged conversation with our clients. So bring your experience, your opinions and your questions. We’ll provide the crayons.

We are all about creating a “setting for an enriched way of life.”

About Us

We solve challenges, answer your questions, and untangle problems. We are transparent. We encourage every client, every consultant to be as invested in the design outcomes as we are. Our clients tell us they appreciate our ability to help reach their objectives with designs matched to their specific need.


Fun, We laugh – daily. We do not take ourselves too seriously – no suits, no Gucci loafers, and rarely a black turtleneck.

Adventurous, like captaining a boat, like piloting planes, or trying new dance forms.

Creative, we are the kids you knew in school who lived for art class. We have fantastical ideas and are filled with child like obsession to create.

Collaborative, we work in a studio environment where all voices are heard, all ideas are tested and all hands are on deck.

Experience Design

We are an innovative and collaborative design studio specializing in arts, entertainment and academic experiences.

We take a holistic approach. We invite open and thorough dialogue with clients and stakeholders. Why? Because we believe a thorough understanding of a project’s optimal usage best guides the many design decisions that go into creating a great experience.

We understand how to Create social spaces where people love to be and can’t wait to return to – whether a theater, restaurant, cruise ship, or campus destination. We understand ROI and put incredible thought into the revenue side of a new facility.

Our clients love working with us; we challenge them to think differently. We act as an extension of the client organization and not a remote third party.

“They helped us imagine what we could not imagine on our own”

Kelley Shanley, President & CEO Broward Center
