We are more than architects and designers; we are problem solvers.  

By earning the trust of several large institutions with very high aesthetic standards and secured spaces, we are regularly asked to work with their art, exhibit, and other custom projects. These projects, in addition to architectural expertise, require industrial design capability and hands-on artistic talent.

Some of these projects require cooperation with the Smithsonian Institution, corporate, and private art collections. Space planning, structural design, and custom fabrication design are part of nearly every project.  Most projects include management of the fabrication by others and, on occasion, we have physically built smaller projects ourselves.

At EDD, we know materials and technology, and fully understand how “things” are put together.
