We tailor our design methodology to suit each client's needs. CHA tackles projects of all different sizes and types and there is not a "one size fits all" approach for every client. We begin with understanding the client's needs and vision for the project and scale our services to fit the scale and budget of the project.


After gaining a clear understanding of the client's vision we begin an iterative process of incorporating ideas and refining the initial design to satisfy the client's program. At this schematic level many options are presented and collaboration with all team members is used to achieve the best possible solution.

A good public space is one that reflects diversity and encourages people to live together effortlessly creating the necessary conditions for permanence and which invites people to be on the street. It is the vitality of spaces that attracts people. Our approach to public space design has its own character, style and culture that must be accounted for in planning, activating, operating and maintaining a site. We apply experience from projects around to achieve our client’s and a community’s unique goals. Our approach incorporates the proven practices that enhance the opportunity for long-term success.
