Philosophy

Y Design Workshop believes the most successful projects are created through a collaborative design process involving the client, consultants and design professionals. Innovative, creative solutions are born from an intentional, engaged and informed process where individual expertise and communal wisdom are equally valued. Integrated design, which requires a collaborative and communicative team, is critical to a successful project that meets the needs and goals while using resources responsibly.

Creative design solutions also result from a focus on the craft of design and building. For us, this requires: sensitive and appropriate responses to each site’s unique qualities and context, responsible stewardship of all resources available – both natural and monetary, and a thorough understanding of the relationship between design and construction. The landscape, and the resources it provides, are great sources of inspiration. Climatic conditions provide opportunities for extremely elegant, but practical design solutions. Local building practices and tradespeople are valuable teachers at the drawing board as well as in the field.

The result of an intentional, collaborative design process that places high value on regional influences, wisdom and context is architecture and design that is culturally significant and meaningful. Oh, and we think it’s pretty beautiful too.
