Programming & Planning

Our team of design thinkers have an infinite drive to solve complex design problems in new and creative ways.  A force of energy, our team actively listens, probes, talks and plans. We explore, exchange ideas, and iterate solutions with our clients. SLAM’s discovery-driven planning method guides our signature charettes, diving deep with clients and stakeholders. A messy but key phase where shared ideas are unlocked, hurdles are overcome, innovation flows, and the big idea is synthesized.

Drawing on a medley of data-driven benchmarking tools, performance metrics, and human behaviors, we create spaces that allow our clients to thrive, to excel, to lead.

Feeling WELL in our buildings

Before I ventured into the architecture and design world, I worked as an Account Manager for a global advertising agency in NYC. The industry is known to be extremely demanding. I worked long hours, late into the night, but I was fresh out of college and didn’t know any better. I also didn’t know that my workplace environment was not conducive to supporting the demands of our work. - Eleana Lynch

Climate change – material selection matters

As a specification writer and architect, I spend a good deal of my time reviewing and learning more about new and existing building materials. But my real passion is finding materials that support and push sustainable design forward. I use my expertise and passion to help project teams, make their projects greener and ultimately combat climate change. - Ross Spiegel
