Clear Story’s design approach is best described by these core qualities present in all of the firm’s projects:

Investigative throughout the design process – Clear Story delves deeply into all aspects of a project to learn how best to translate project goals into compelling design aesthetics and unique architectural spaces.

Collaborative by nature –  Clear Story is adept at building and leading teams of professionals with varied perspectives, skills, and backgrounds, all while balancing responsibilities to meet the special needs of creative projects.

A full-service firm – Clear Story maintains ongoing, hands-on project leadership throughout the life-cycle of the project from the conceptual development and design of core elements, often including material selection and fabrication, to installation and maintenance.

Thoughtful of context and responsive to the audience – Clear Story designs projects that work in harmony with the architectural vocabulary of their settings by using the structure and movement of a space to immerse audiences in meaningful experiences.

Committed to sustainable design and building practices  Clear Story follows strict material sourcing and selection standards, specifies energy efficient systems, and takes a microlocal approach that brings into service the resources and talents of the regional creative economy whenever possible.
