Five-dimensional design for the three-dimensional world to cure one-dimensional thinking.


Volume is a creative studio helping architects, developers, creative institutions, and forward-thinking companies to enhance the built world where people work, gather, learn, and play. We specialize in place-based identities, branded environments, exhibit programs, and other spatial activations.

We uncover and highlight the narratives embedded in these places, whether they are long-lost histories or present-day stories. We devise frameworks that invite people to ponder, reflect, and even participate. We design memorials in civic spaces, create identities for neighborhoods, insert poetry into corporate workplaces, program history lessons in public parks, and even teach sustainability in remote forests.

Our work is site-specific. It’s site-sensitive. Informed by local character—the history, landscape, people, function, and experience. Emerging from the place, whatever that “place” is—physical or virtual, civic or commercial.
