The context of a site can inform its design; a view, a natural land form, a riparian area, adjacent buildings, street frontage. They can all offer clues to the "right" design approach. Breaking free from the perceptions of stakeholders on what "should be" can often lead to the liberation of finding what "can be". Juggling engineering and jurisdictional constraints with the contextural opportunities allows us to find the "place" that a site is longing to become.
