...an opportunity to see space differently...
In its most elegant and wonderful state, architecture is able to mold and effect our lives in ways we wouldn't otherwise be able to experience. It can teach us about our environment, our community, and ourselves. It can cradle and embrace us in introspective ways - and fill us with joy and pleasure in outward excitement. Simply - and without extraneous cost, fashion, or indulgence - architecture is the fantastic molding of light, space, and experience for us - people - to be a part of and share together in pleasure. With that belief gripped tightly, MODULUS' design process begins by taking the time to thoroughly understand the desires, needs, and wishes of our clients and then proceed to accept them as our own. We place ourselves in the 'seat' of the client in order to more fully identify with those parameters that will effect the space that our clients will work, play, learn, dream, and live within. In the careful investigation of those goals, and in identifying the unique set of circumstances that make up the project budget, timeline, and environment, we are able to transform the needs and issues that effect the lives of all the users and strive to create a space for each to enjoy. - on time, on budget, and of the highest quality.
