We approach architecture and site planning as a means to give life and purpose to new and existing buildings. We engage with the culture and history of our clients and the sites we are asked to work with, and we explore their contemporary uses and contexts. We celebrate the diversity of our clients and find inspiration in the specific goals and conditions of each project we undertake.
We have had the privilege to work with many academic, religious, and cultural institutions as well as local communities who want to balance growth with a commitment to the preservation of the character and scale of their existing buildings and site. We hold a deep commitment to environmental and cultural sustainability, whether the project is urban or rural, historic or contemporary.
Our renovations of historically significant structures for cultural, academic and civic organizations has led us to devise new approaches to historic preservation. We embrace community renewal as a primary criterion for a project’s success. Atkin Olshin Schade Architects has a wide geographic presence, with projects across the United States, and offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
