Who We Are

Founded in 1991, DAVIS is an Architecture, Interiors and Urban Design firm specializing in exceptional commercial and residential mixed-use properties. We create inspired architecture for everyday life for the nation’s best corporations and developers; and have designed 75 million square feet of highly successful business, residential and social environments with a value of $20 Billion.

DAVIS is in the business of maximizing the quality of ‘life’ in ‘place’. Life in Place® is about making meaningful connections between people and place, movement and urban form, nature and the built environment. Inspired architecture for everyday life involves a heightened sense of wonder, awe and joy by such intensity of perception, as to cause it to stand out in contrast to the experiences that surround it in time and space.

Our passion is to create remarkable moments where each of us spend the most time:

The place we Live.

The place we Work.

and our ‘Third Place’

Our projects are consistently valued at the highest rates in the marketplace, lease the fastest and most importantly; captivate and bring joy to the people that inhabit them. That matters.

Design matters.
