OUR FIRM

As a team of skilled architects and innovative designers, Embarc sees Architecture as more than just buildings. It is a collection of spaces that enrich the lives of those who occupy them and the harmony those spaces have with their surroundings.

To achieve that elusive relationship between person, space, and place, we collaborate with our diverse clientele and partnerships to create solutions that exceed expectations. In order to connect people experientially and socially, we form close relationships with our sites and neighborhoods, and the data we collect drives every aspect of our projects. This feedback loop of place, site, and design informs our work, ensuring each project has a unique and meaningful resolution.

Our clients are integral to our process as we balance the effects of place and space with their desires and requirements. By making our clients inseparable from the design process, we know that each project will include a diverse set of voices, further enhancing the architectural landscape.

Architecture is a collaboration. It is not just the efforts of clients, architects, consultants, and builders but the union of site, landscape, and place.

Restaurant

We enjoy crafting curated spaces for our Restaurant clients. Every project we embarc on pays special attention to who the restauranteur is, achieves an understanding of what the message is, and sets up an experience that their patrons can enjoy and come back to – whether it be an active after hours bar scene, or very fine dining.

Master Planning & Historic Renovation

We approach all our master planning projects with the analysis of existing conditions, programmatic requirements, and systems-level thinking. We investigate and study the neighborhood to carefully stitch every new development into its existing fabric.

One of the best ways to enhance our existing environment is through the care and reuse of our historic buildings. We believe in preserving structures in a way that speaks to both history and context. Repurposing these buildings for future generations ensures that their stories are not forgotten and adds a new chapter to these buildings’ lives.
