Why Signum?

In Latin, signum means design — a sign, a symbol, a signature.

For us, signum symbolizes synergy, a collaborative approach to design, and our commitment to building a practice that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Working at Signum

When we formed our partnership in 2011, we had the opportunity to define a new design practice founded on trust, teamwork, inspired problem-solving and the long-term view. We nurture our practice and our culture through our dedication to design integrity and mindful decision-making. We support and empower our staff through mentoring and an inclusive approach to design. As partners, we dedicate ourselves to every project, and we continue to build an environment of creative confidence based on curiosity, collaboration and a willingness to push the language of architecture to achieve something greater.
