The SoL Experience

SoL, Latin for Sun, represents light, life and sustainable design.

The SoL Experience is our formalized process of gaining relevant input about the type of people who will use the proposed building and the activities those people will engage in. It is about more than just constructing a container. Spaces should be built to satisfy the human experience, creating a 'holistic environment' that inspires people to aspire to their best in everything they do, whether it's working, learning, playing or relaxing.

This process asks the kind of questions that go to the essence of what the building is all about and who will be using it. The information is essential in understanding how people are influenced, interact, and behave in response to their environment. Defining how form will follow people keeps those who will use the spaces now and in the future at the forefront of our thinking, from beginning to end.
