Architecture, Sustainability, and the Great Outdoors:

Our mission

About our studio

About our studio

We started our design firm in a small Providence, RI office on, you guessed it, Benefit Street. We have since moved, morphed, and re-calibrated our process, but always with one goal in mind: design thoughtful and exciting buildings and places. Our firm is still small (on purpose), yet wide in the respect that we have bases on two coasts (we love the internet and cell phones). This setup allows us to consider a vast array of client needs, design ideas, and sustainable practices, while also keeping our attention focused by not engaging too much work at once. Overall, we simply enjoy being outdoors and want to leverage our decades of architectural design knowledge to benefit the outdoor recreation community. That is the Benefit we provide.
