start with why
When you partner with Synthesis, we know we have to START WITH THE WHY, understanding of your mission and vision engages us to deliver a project that will be a catalyst for your success. We believe ideas and informed decisions from listening to you drive our creative process, not preconceived conclusions. Our role encompasses more than simply understanding how buildings, spaces, and sites related to one another. Design is problem-solving…and it’s about people. It’s more than our tagline, it’s what we do.
Projects never start with answers or preconceived notions. Our team believes the success of a project begins with an immersion in information gathering and listening. Our job is to listen to you and your stakeholders, understand the project needs and accommodate institutional approaches while offering new methods and opportunities for you to consider.
Responsible Creativity is our creative process that sparks unique ways to envision project solutions. Comprised of four distinct components completed prior to the traditional design phases where others begin; Discovery, Visioning, Ideation, and Creation provide a rich and untethered exploration of ideas grounded in client goals, market research, trending analysis, and secondary market influences with project budgets in mind. The release from conventional and preconceived design notions positions our studio to create solutions that surpass expectations.
