From the Jefferson Hotel: ForrestPerkins supports a collaborative culture. Known for its inclusive, holistic approach to design, the firm encourages designers and architects to become well-rounded in their knowledge and facility with the other’s discipline. Instead of segregating the design process into architects on one side and designers on the other or further segmenting design into FF&E selection and color and materials selection, our designers are multi-faceted. From the beginning of each project, we fully integrate designers and architects. In our firm, teams are led by a senior designer or an architect, with leadership designated based on experience and expertise, not by discipline. This approach begins at the top.
