Who are we?


Founded in 2001, The Design Response is a land planning and urban design firm specializing in collaborative strategic thinking, pragmatic placemaking site design, and effective management of development projects through complex review processes.

Our consultant role is to perform as an experienced strategic sounding board and to assist with the creation of value that is your goal.  We are proficient at the identification and minimization of project risks while always remaining aware of opportunities to maximize project rewards.

We frequently serve as both the right arm of the client in coordinating the project’s consultant team and as the harbor pilot for the review process that is to be navigated.

Our designs are strong, buildable, and responsive to the physical and social environment.  From realistic preliminary concept plans to placemaking site design details, we articulate, illustrate, and deliver.
