Architecture often brings together dissimilar materials, systems, spaces, and geometry. Somehow the technical and design parameters associated with each set of these architectural elements need to come together as a unified and buildable whole.
This is where details come into play.
Detailing is a gift to designers. It is an invitation to creatively express the resolution of these oft-complex connections and relationships among different architectural elements and systems.
At PLA, we view detailing as a great opportunity to bring poetry to the simple yet effective resolution of details. Our love of craft, traditional and contemporary, enables us to celebrate the art of creation with economy and delight.
Detail categories include light, space/form, materials, and joinery/connections.
