our core values

Thinkspace is a value-driven design practice. That means we hold ourselves to a very high standard, and conduct ourselves according to the following five core values:


Assumptions and preconceived ideas starve curiosity. That’s not the Thinkspace way. We ask questions like, “What if…”, and we explore the improbable. We are patient; a better solution will emerge if we stay open to the possible.


We ask, and we listen. We don’t tell. We communicate and stay connected with our clients - we have too much respect for their perspective not to. It’s the key to design that enhances the human condition.


We all view the world from our own, unique vantage point, informed by life’s experiences. When we collaborate with clients, builders, consultants, and each other, we harness something of incredible value that only the individual can provide.


There are no shortcuts to great work. It requires our everything – focus, energy, and passion. Each of us must commit to great work – for ourselves, and for one another. And to doing what’s right, not what’s easy.


To do great work, we must work as a team - a team that holds each other accountable in pursuit of a common objective. Being accountable means that we deliver upon our commitments, no matter what!
