What we do
While the firm undertakes commissions in many design areas, including resort, recreational, commercial and institutional projects, SGN+A specializes in the planning and design of large scale, high quality multifamily residential communities. Since the firm was formed in 1992, SGN+A has been involved in the planning and design of over 350 multifamily projects, encompassing over 50,000 residential units. The firm’s staff has extensive experience in the design of garden style, mid-rise and high-rise apartment and condominium developments. These projects range in density from under 5 units per acre to over 100 units per acre and include both renovations and new construction.
Planning and landscape architecture are recognized by SGN+A as critically important to the holistic and comprehensive design of multifamily residential communities. Our in-house design team of architects, planners and landscape architects work together to develop solutions which combine the requirements of the building program with an understanding of the site and planning constraints. This integration of design disciplines results in projects that are not only distinctive and functional, but respond to the local context and conditions.
Recognizing the unique challenges large scale apartment and condominium communities present for the environment, the staff of SGN+A is well versed in sustainable design strategies appropriate for these type of projects. To create low impact, healthy, and sustainable communities through the integration of physical planning and design, our planners and landscape architects strive to develop site plans that preserve open space and provide innovative stormwater management solutions, while our architects strive to create indoor environments that maximize energy and water usage and utilize renewable materials.
SGN+A provides a complete range of services, including design, construction documents and construction observation, together with effective project management. Every project is directed by one of the firm’s principals, who remains involved in the project from the beginning of conceptual design through the completion of construction. This in-depth involvement provides the client with a single point of contact throughout the project and assists us in meeting the client’s operational and aesthetic requirements.
