Community Based Design

The core of HBB’s design approach is a community-based and iterative design process. This is often accomplished through public outreach and design workshops with key stakeholders, team members, the general public, or our clients. Community-based design works to:

  • distill a clear vision for the project that informs our design process.
  • review design potentials and alternatives with all stakeholders.
  • reach informed consent so projects can move forward.

This process leads to an increased sense of ownership by the community and by stakeholders, and ultimately leads to the success of our projects in celebrating the character of each community.
