Steiner + Associates’ innovative and influential planning philosophy is based on the understanding that great designs are defined not by the buildings, but by the spaces between the buildings. Steiner developments utilize negative spaces that benefit from carefully calibrated scale and proportion: grand squares and intimate nooks all designed to accommodate and facilitate human activity. To that end, Steiner is meticulous when it comes to purposefully and naturally filling those public spaces. From fountains and benches to play areas, rooftop gardens and sculptures, Steiner projects are packed with surprises, spaces and places that add texture, visual interest and experiential energy.
