PHILOSOPHY

SMBW is a leading interdisciplinary design studio for thoughtful, forward-looking contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and urban planning in the Mid Atlantic Region. We partner with our clients to produce timeless, identity-rich and mission-driven environments by integrating rigorous technical expertise with stewardship of the urban and natural landscape.

We are architects, interior designers and planners; photographers, painters, furniture makers and musicians; historians and collectors; volunteers, advisors, community leaders, and, above all, designers.

We produce architecture of consequence, not of circumstance. Our work is urban and rural, humble and profound, institutional and intimate. SMBW thrives on unique and challenging project types that cultivate equally distinctive design responses. We are passionately dedicated to the significance of what we build, making a lasting, positive contribution to the communities in which we work.
