“Success is derived from a deep understanding of the fundamental needs a space or facility must deliver to those who will inhabit it everyday. Deciphering these needs, developing designs that solves the questions at hand and then measuring the impact of our designs are integral methods to our process that ensure we do indeed deeply understand the task at hand.”

Design Philosophy

“I’m always challenged, and thoroughly enjoy working in collaborative environments. No project and no day is ever the same. The work is always highly stimulating.”

Working at Lyons

“We work in a highly collaborative manner and never assume we understand what the design solution is from the start. The design solution is something that we develop specific to our client and our client’s needs, objectives and aspirations”
