Our Team


Christopher Pollard
Principal, B.A.D.I.D., NCIDQ, R.I.D., LEED AP

For Chris, good design is the result of curiosity, careful listening and asking far too many questions. He is driven to fully understand the needs, aspirations and frustrations of clients and end users in order to create spaces where people truly want to be. After 20 years of design and project leadership experience, he is an expert in bringing a client’s ethos to life through the built environment.

Chris is committed to designing spaces that make connections between the inside and the outside, promote engagement between people, soften our environmental footprint and evoke emotion and inspiration through the incorporation of art into the everyday.
