Founded in 2008, the firm now employs more than 20 people, including partners Chris Baribeau, Josh Siebert, and Jason Wright.

  • University of Arkansas Art + Design District: Sculpture Studio, a transformation of a warehouse on a brownfield site into a simple but striking space for creating and exhibiting artwork
  • Eco Modern Flats, a renovation of four dated Fayetteville apartment buildings to improve aesthetics, performance, and sustainability
