ART wORKS: INSTALLATIONS, SCULPTURE, DRAWING + PAINTING


MO is an unconventional studio in that we take a fully integrative approach to creative works. Our process is holistic in that our deliverables will ensure that your voice will be visible in the smallest of details through the largest of spatial expressions.

For residential projects, this means we can take you from a conceptual design through build out.

For businesses, we can work with you if you are in the very early stages of developing your company, or if you are a well-established brand. We can help you develop a business plan, create your brand and relevant collateral, build your website and then design your space so that it encompasses your mission, values and goals as a company.


VISIONING

Our Visioning Exercise will enable you to develop a stellar brand along with create clear objectives, identify priorities, and define critical action steps needed for the design of your brand and/or build out of your space. The exercise is usually an on-site, collaborative process with you and your group where we will guide you through a planning process for building a smart, collaborative programmatic plan. This will be customized to your business needs to help shape the design direction. The information from these sessions will be used to develop your company's brand, collateral, website, and spatial schematic design. 

At the conclusion of the Visioning sessions you will have clearly defined information about your service/product, your brand, your mission and your goals that will enable you to establish a unified vision that informs the design of your brand and/or your space. It will help transform your approach and direction to the design, and you will have a clear road map to move forward.

ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS

We design commercial, retail, industrial, restaurant and residential spaces. We like to delve into issues concerning the structure of built form and the consequences of formal composition, tectonic and spatial manipulation. This approach to design makes possible a profound apprehension of space. Our services include:

SCHEMATIC DESIGN
This phase is about conceptual analysis and description - the size, character and scope of a project, including materials and systems.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
This next phase consists of drawings and documents that help to further develop the project, along with detailing materials, systems, and engaging engineering disciplines.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS
The following phase includes the development of drawings specific to build out. We provide all documents necessary for permits, bidding and construction, as required or necessary by governing jurisdictions. These documents will be used for pricing and the bid process can include any trades offered via the Owner. 

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION
This phase is where we will review the in-progress construction to make sure the work is being built as it was designed. On-site meetings include review of the construction documents with the subcontractors.


ART WORKS

Our works of art are transdisciplinary in nature, and we seek out new ways that creative outlets can tie in with positive change for our local surroundings and our world. We focus on the development of creative consciousness through multidisciplinary approaches with experimentation, investigation and contemporary studies. The content of our work is broad, but most importantly engages the viewer in multifaceted positions.

Texture, color, patterns and multimedia are used to tell stories and connect people to the visceral aspects of their surroundings. We use these devices to explore the human condition and our connection to the environment, along with issues and ethics surrounding finite energy resources. This informs our expression of the confluence of art and design, and often results in a Gestalt interpretation of how we interpret our surroundings. We believe we are built to experience our immediate world in a holistic manner, and through our work aspire to cultivate a cross-disciplinary conversation. 

It is incredibly important to us that the quality of our built work exemplifies the design intent. We will work to ensure that any project isn't just built well, but that it showcases the details of construction that would otherwise be overlooked.
