If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
Q and A
Favorite HPS Project
Sutter Altos Oaks Surgery Center – small but complex project with great details from the roof right on down to the landscaping.
I learned most
Working on the Kaiser Hospital Support Building and being part of a large, collaborative team which included the owner’s team, and the design, engineering, and construction teams.
Good Design Is
Intriguing, inviting, sheltering, and functional.
If Architecture is Music it’s
It’s music with a good beat, like the patterns underlying good architecture. Music and architecture should have rhythm and movement, enhancing how the building or the song is experienced.
