DESIGN

Terra's architectural team takes a design-led approach to built-form, architectural systems, and development in order to create an appealing, healthy, safe, and sustainable environment.

We deliver fresh approaches and creative solutions to built environment projects ranging in scale from modest freestanding residences to multi-unit apartment complexes and subdivision master planning.

The team collaborates with other Terra disciplines to increase delivery efficiency. At Terra, we blur the barriers between disciplines, creating possibilities from restrictions and integrating high-value results to create resilient, quality environments with unique character and sense of place.

We employ high-quality architecture and planning to provide value to our customers; projects and the environment in which we operate. We are client-focused and produce cost-effective solutions on time and within budget.

We are passionate about the opportunities for cooperation and innovation in architecture and urban design in the contemporary city.
