Event Planning



Every event has unique objectives for success. Some are intimate gatherings designed to motivate key stakeholder. Others are interactive community oriented events designed to generate activities and culture. We have organized hundreds of events ranging in sizes from 10 to 1000 people, and can help you concept, budget, market, and even execute your event so you can focus on participating.

Space Planning & Design



Physical space is one of the largest single financial investments you will make in your community. With the unique perspective as both operators and designers, we know both what works and what looks good. We work with you from concept to completion to ensure that your vision is translated into both the form and function of your space.

Our team’s work, led by Eric R. Parker, AIA, has been published by the Stanford in “Make Space: How to set the stage for Creative Collaboration”.
