“Having worked with Semple Brown Design multiple times, I trust their design instincts. I also like the fact that they are ‘urbanists’ at heart, yet equally comfortable with modernism and historic preservation. There is also an attention to detail not found everywhere. Working with their staff has always been comfortable and fun.”

— Thomas A. Gougeon, President, Gates Family Foundation
