Institutional is a broad category. Most buildings Torchio Architects have completed in this group have been for use by the public and each one is designed as a specific response to the user, the site, and the budget. Like with any building program, we gather as much information about the wants and needs of the user and establish clear goals and objectives. By doing so we feel the design is more of a reflection of the users than the architects. Similarly, site characteristics like sun, wind, vegetation, views, topography, context, governmental and community constraints all factor heavily into the design. The results are places that enhance learning, signify civic pride, promote healing, comfort kids, accentuate a collection or become the center of activity in a community.
