Enhancing Experience Through Design

Clients hire START Architecture to design a building, but what they get is a space that enhances experience.

By considering the interaction between sensory, elemental, economic, and environmental factors, START creates designs that have the potential to influence the way people think, feel, and interact within a space.

START sees design as a means of facilitating ideal experiences that ultimately enhance a company’s brand or a community’s culture.

Always looking for new ways to harness the potential of design, START incorporates sustainable designs into its architectural design practices. Contact START to learn more about the potential of design.
