We are experts at analyzing sites and proposing design solutions that maximize project value through increased efficiency and density. We typically present a strong project vision that stakeholders support with enthusiasm.
Each preliminary concept is hand-sketched by Arno Matis. Our accelerated laser-cut physical models allow for quick conceptual understanding of urban environments.
We use parametric design software to inform and manipulate complex geometries through controlled and varied parameters set by project stakeholders, allowing for rapid succession iterative modeling and a more clearly definable outcome.
Advanced in-house digital modeling creates higher quality graphic visualizations to enhance presentations and branding efforts, building early excitement in the community and marketplace.
Our iterative, design-centered approach maximizes project value through the deep context exploration, leveraging of the unique qualities of every site.
We do not apply generic solutions to our projects. Every project is a unique statement about the project’s time and use.
The firm Principal is personally involved in the design and management of every AMA project. This approach ensures continuity and quality in each project, and across our entire project portfolio.
