ONYX draws on the strengths of all our staff to meet our client’s most demanding aspirations. Design teams work together to craft buildings that demonstrate sensitivity to program, budget and schedule in a clear and straightforward manner. ONYX has a proven track record of skillfully creating buildings that work with the existing context, while being distinctive in their own way.
The ONYX design process is a collaborative progression with the client and key stakeholders. The journey begins with a thorough understanding of the zoning requirements and rigorous analysis of the client’s program, goals and objectives as well as the project site, ecology and context. We strive to know as much as possible about our client’s needs, culture, budget and schedule so that we can develop a detailed work plan and design objectives to serve as beacons for our work together. We provide leadership, but we keep the owner in control every step of the way.
Beyond simply fulfilling our contractual obligations, we take joy in the process of conceiving and realizing projects with our clients.
We accept the challenges of our age to pursue a design that will responsibly address environmental and sustainability concerns.
