Workshop/APD believes passionately in the power of good design to shape human experience, and the firm’s team is committed to bringing creativity, ingenuity and intelligence to the public and private spaces people inhabit.

Whether designing private homes, large-scale hospitality or civic environments, the firm’s approach brings craftsmanship to architecture. Working from each project’s purpose and unique requirements, the firm’s team of designers seeks to balance the line of rational and tactile, of embellishment and restraint.

Workshop/APD specializes in creating spacial experiences, by solving problems for the many ways people live and engage with the world. These experiences incorporate materials and processes that are touched, and to encourage touch, as the most intimate human experience.

“We are a team of thinkers, with a point of view,” says principal Andrew Kotchen. “Our culture is one of questioning each other, as well as those who craft our designs. Humans are at the center of everything we make, beginning with our work environment.”
