Fabrication Studio

Although our firm operates using a full range of design and rendering technologies, physical model making is fundamental to our practice and the development of our designs. Our in-house Model Shop employs six full-time skilled fabricators that use traditional shop machinery and carpentry tools as well as laser cutting, CNC, and 3D printing to create beautifully crafted scale models. With outstanding attention to detail and unwavering dedication to the craft, our fabrication studio is uniquely capable of forming highly detailed models that set us apart from other firms.
