Philosophy

Pugh + Scarpa is committed to producing work of exceptional rigor and an architecture that expresses the highest aesthetic, environmental, and social ideals.

By grounding our work in the perception and experience of the user, we are able to avoid impersonal abstraction and superficiality; instead we turn our attention to creating an indelible sense of place intrinsic to the user's experience. The experience of the user drives everything we create. While acknowledging the importance of form, our working methodology emphasizes experience, memory and perception.
