The relationship of architecture to site is a constant and central focus of Charles Rose Architects' work. For each project—whether urban, suburban, or rural—the site and environment are closely studied to create an architecture that responds both formally, functionally, and materially to the surroundings. This design approach has led to collaborations with landscape architects to create buildings and structures that are uniquely responsive to program and site. It has also led to a range of planning studies for public and private institutions—from small studies for the siting and development of single buildings to comprehensive plans.
