PHILOSOPHY

The ADKINS ASSOCIATION believes that the basis of architecture is creative problem solving. We take pride in addressing and merging the needs and concerns of various interest groups involved in a project into an end product where there is ownership on the part of all involved.

Our priorities as architects are placed on forming a team in collaboration with our clients, presenting choices and answers, and serving as interpreter, educator, and catalyst. We believe that we can learn from those who come to us for help, and that there are many new opportunities with each new project we encounter.

However, as designers, we do not have a preconception or a formula for the design process. We begin a process-oriented approach by gathering information about the site, and the program requirements and priorities. As we interact with our client's design team, we adapt our procedures to optimize communication.

Through this interaction, the design evolves to reflect the unique culture and vision projected by our client and by our own innovative approaches and experience.

We take an active interest in our completed projects, and welcome client feedback on finished buildings. We strive to ensure that the same dedication to service is applied to questions and problems arising from completed projects, as well as our active projects.
