DRAW is different
from other architecture firms

We think, speak, and design differently —
an expression of two singular characteristics that define us: deep listening and bold action.

We call this empathy + activism.

Empathy

We actively tap the resources of our clients’ knowledge, experiences and connections.

We act as stewards of our clients’ financial resources and seek opportunities to make budgets go further.

We use cutting edge technology – including tools we have developed ourselves – to streamline our design process and make it more transparent and accessible to our clients.

Activism

We find singular, sometimes unorthodox opportunities that will make a project better.

We respond to the embodied possibilities within a project’s surrounding community and the climatic forces that naturally exist on a building site.

Our mission is to be the leader in Positive Impact Design, collaboratively creating places and research that elevates experience, performance, and community.

Innovation

We developed PlanIT Impact with one goal in mind: to reduce carbon impact and water use by removing barriers to efficiency and sustainability in design.
