The heart of good design is that which connects people to their built environment. When coupled with vision and thoughtfulness, it can fulfill functional needs and heighten the human spirit. At MILES ASSOCIATES, our foundation for a successful project starts with collaborative client communication through our series of LISTEN + REACH + BUILD workshops. This process enables our team to develop a distinct design solution to meet our client's end goal while balancing their aesthetic and budgetary objectives. Each project, no matter how big or small, is a top priority and approached with the same level of enthusiasm and competence to ensure our client's needs are met.
Listening is a dynamic and essential process of creating trust and a shared understanding of our client’s goals. At MILES ASSOCIATES, we utilize our LISTEN Workshop to conduct thorough onsite interviews and work sessions with key leadership and stakeholders. This forum allows our team to present relevant data and listen to how our client's organization works - their needs, priorities, and vision for the future. Focused on listening and interpreting all desired criteria, our team then proceeds with translating these planning and design needs into innovative architectural solutions to reflect our client's unique culture, brand, and corporate identity.
With a clear understanding of our client's needs, coupled with an inquisitive nature, the MILES team seeks to design uniquely-tailored solutions to achieve our client's goals. Once all information has been vetted by our design team, we develop a follow-up workshop to present our findings and identify potential opportunities to reinforce our client's long-term goals and vision for their organization. The purpose of this meeting is to collaboratively explore new opportunities that can be translated into architectural solutions. We also explore potential benchmarking trips that can provide additional perspective in the successful execution of current design trends.
