WHO WE ARE                                                                   FIRM PROFILE

We believe that great places are the result of great partnerships. We place client satisfaction as a top priority. Working collaboratively, we use our expertise to create pragmatic, well-conceived places that balance client program and user experience. We define our success in creating meaningful places.


Working with a variety of clients, our relationships are of the utmost importance. Communication between architects, engineers and developers is accomplished through process coordination as well as creative collaboration. We value open conversations in developing all project types. Since the inception of Sage Design Group, our interactions with municipalities have given us unique skills to anticipate potential obstacles in the entitlement approval process. Our approved projects range from simple renovations and rehabilitation to creating iconic, exciting environments. Planting design and environmental understanding provide nuanced detail in our projects that create identity and place. Our knowledge and collaborative skills provide key qualities in a partner that you can depend on in developing your project.
