Duda|Paine Architects distinguishes itself through a unique method of working: our ‘practice of engagement’ fosters interaction and exchange between client, project team, end-users and the broader community to craft a project’s unique architectural identity. We bring a global approach to every scale of project and every market, using the analytical and problem solving discipline of architecture to enlighten and transform contemporary paradigms for organizations, businesses and institutions.

We utilize experience, information gathering, research, dialog and transparent methods of representation to shape design options that unite differing viewpoints and inform decision-making. The resulting building and planning projects surpass their original vision and intent. 85% of our work comes from repeat clients. These clients have experienced unprecedented results through our design process, our emphasis on relationships, and the insight their organizations have gained working with us.

We at Duda|Paine continually refine our methods of working to incorporate emerging technologies, yet the design process remains a stable expression of our fundamental beliefs. We consider the artistry of design vital to all projects and consider the process of making architecture a profoundly social act, capable of transforming how we live, learn, work and play. Our duty as architects is to translate and interpret the core values of our clients in organizationally, socially, economically and environmentally responsible architectural terms. For us, methodology and philosophy are inseparable.
