We march to the beat of a different drummer.

As designers, we must be keenly aware of how our decisions affect the natural environment, the user experience and our client’s budgets. In nature, nothing exists in isolation. Natural systems provide great insight for guiding our design approach as we develop specific solutions and details for each project. We view our projects as living environments to deliver a handcrafted experience of place.

The Triple Bottom Line

each new project is an opportunity to transform how we interact with the environment


Connection to other humans and how well communities thrive is directly related to their relationship with their physical environments. As we approach a new project we look to maximize human capital. Making sure human systems and organizations are interconnected to the environment and economic streams that make the most of their relationships to one another


Nature is our greatest teacher. Her systems, ability to adapt and wealth of bio diversity make her our greatest partner. Our projects find solutions that bring forth the power of connecting to nature. The landscape offers society endless benefits - education, reduction of stress, improved wellness, and economic renewal can all be derived from a strong connection with the natural environment.


Economics must work to drive projects forward. We enter each project with the knowledge of understanding project budgets, on-going maintenance costs, and increased value added to the communities where successful outdoor space is executed. We also understand that only evaluating projects by a singular bottom line dollar is an antiquated way of measuring sustainable and resilient success.


pace, rhythm, measure. Cadence

There is a rhythm in nature, in our lives, and in communication. We approach every project with our design process that honors an active cadence to move things forward. This measured approach ensures thoughtful research, analysis and careful regard to design detail is achieved in each solution we deliver.

1. Project Definition

Cadence collaborates with the client and project team to outline project objectives and to prepare a preliminary program of elements to be included in the scope of work.

1. Project Definition

2. Master Planning

An on-site workshop is conducted and a defnition of the project vision is determined. The master plan is created with all program elements included and the plan serves as the guide for further design development.

3. Schematic Design

Schematic design drawings further the master plan. This phase examines site specific elements in more detail, establishing design intent, character, materials and spatial relationship

4. Design Development

The design development phase of drawings assists with further refining budget and developing a set of drawings to transform into construction documentation.

4. Design Development

5. Construction Documents

Cadence produces this set of technical drawings which communicates all elements in plan view and three dimensional form for constructing site work.

5. Construction Documents

6. Implementation

Cadence works past the drawings and assists in the final stages of obtaining bids from contractors. We also provide construction observation to ensure consistency of design intent.
