Our Integrated Multidisciplinary Model

SMMA’s approach to design is unique. Unlike a single architect-focused model, we take advantage of our firm composition by involving every design discipline in every aspect of our projects. Our model transforms the typical top-down design management model into a more transparent and holistic approach rooted in the belief that good ideas can come from anywhere.  



The effectiveness of early involvement and the convergence of artistic and technical focus speaks directly to the sophisticated needs of our clients. It allows for an agile response to the ever-changing needs of a given project due to the depth and availability of our design and engineering talent, all in a single location. We believe our holistic approach to design helps create beautiful, functional, and responsible places.
