    THE DS ARCHITECTURE WAY

    We enjoy inspiring together as a team that values trust and commitment to knowledge. Our enduring devotion to cultivating an environment of trust and genuine care has generated a firm of dedicated and unabashedly collaborative people. People who enjoy working together and bringing out the best in each other. Guided by our shared core principals, mission and vision, each individual contributes their talents and strengths to the whole. Our projects tell the story of this evolution and progression.

     

    WHO WE ARE

    CULTURE

    What was most important to David Sommers at the founding of the firm remains the essential element today - family.

     

    We are a family that works together and grows together; we are rewarded by the process of creating excellent design together (and we have a lot of fun along the way).

     

    PHILOSOPHY

    We are never finished. Our projects are the core of our work. We strive for the best on every project and we are transformed by the experience.

     

    We are organized internally to respond with flexibility to change and growth and to foster innovation and creativity.

    Guided by our shared core principles, mission and vision, each individual contributes their talents and strengths to the whole. Each leader supports and mentors individual development, promoting the advancement of the whole organization.

     

    Our projects tell the story of this evolution and progression.

     

    OUR CORE VALUES

    FAIRNESS. Our way is fair and benefits all concerned. Actions must occur and decisions must be made for the greater good. Be a true team player by sacrificing for the betterment of the group. Individuals are expected to take the initiative and contribute when help is needed. Stay humble. Others actions and decisions are being made to benefit you and the common mission.

     

    TRUSTWORTHINESS. This will guide you and us to success. Pride yourself on honesty and integrity. Own up to mistakes. Understand your strengths but more importantly understand your weaknesses and be willing to ask for assistance.

     

    CONVICTION. Desire to solve. Passionately accomplish any challenge. From engaging in the design process to receiving criticism positively. Persevere. Overcome difficulties and face obstacles head on for yourself and all of us.

     

    COLLABORATION. This is paramount to our design process that enhances solutions to complex problems. Ideas come from everyone and everywhere. None of us is as smart as all of us. Share ideas and experiences and contribute to an environment where others will share. All ideas, good or bad, contribute to a successful outcome. Be willing to listen and understand other ideas. From the smallest voices may come the biggest ideas.

     

    COMMITMENT TO KNOWLEDGE. Always learning and always teaching is our differential core value and will push us to the forefront of our industry. Be eager to learn and enthusiastic to teach. Seek out learning opportunities. Use your knowledge to lead and inspire.

     

    WHY

    INSPIRING TOGETHER

    By engaging others through the architectural process, we aspire to spark imagination, creativity, and originality in ourselves and others.

     

    HOW

    We listen. We invite the sharing of information, ideas and goals. This input gathering at the very outset of the process lays the groundwork for a project that best meets the project budget, schedule, form and functional needs.

     

    We lead. We guide the discussion and promote the collaboration between all team members to produce a project we are all proudly invested in.

     

    We Innovate. Every project is unique. Reaching the optimal solution for each project requires a team committed to studying, assessing and developing the most efficient and enduring design.

     

    WHAT

    PROVIDING CREATIVE SOLUTIONS

    We strive to ignite the passion of design in everyone involved while offering unique options and solutions to each architectural project.
