The DRAW Difference is

DRAW’s ethos of Positive Impact Design includes
elevating the urban and site context, going beyond great aesthetics to understand the cultural + social dynamics,
and utilizing our radically resourceful process to
design with empathy + activism.


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.


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.


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.
