Q&A with Philip Durham

Where do you find design inspiration?

Books and magazines, art galleries and museums, travel.

How do you approach the design process?

Every project begins with research and a series of meetings with the client to develop an accurate program. We then develop the design in a highly interactive design process with the client, relying on sketches and study models to present ideas.

What makes your aesthetic stand out amongst other designers?

We have a clean, functional, modern aesthetic in a part of the country that still tends to be very conservative in its design directions.

What is the greatest value you provide to your clients?

Our wealth of experience on a variety of projects give us the ability to help our clients spend their money intelligently (though not necessarily to spend less).
