At Chinati he honed his perception of the integral relationship between site and structure, which drives Gideon's sensibility today.


Process
Architecture evolves out of the site conditions as each site is unique. We believe in the integral relationship between site and structure and that sustainable design begins with the orientation of the building on the site. The site includes all factors that have a direct impact on the project. We analyze the topography, surrounding neighborhoods, city codes, client desires, sun angles and wind directions to create spatial experiences that allow people to connect with their environment.

We work closely with clients to develop their visions and provide the following professional services:
Phase I: Field Measurement and Documentation of Existing Conditions
Phase II: Schematic Design
Phase III: Design Development
Phase IV: Construction Documents
Phase V: Bid Process/Contractor Selection
Phase VI: Construction Administration
