SALT Design Studio is a mission-driven, collaborative studio devoted to changing the world through ecologically and socially sustainable design. We believe in the power of process – how you make and design a place has everything to do with how well it functions, what it looks like and whether people will enjoy, appreciate, and remember their experience of it. We support a transparent and participatory process with our clients and within the firm. SALT advocates for the site by educating our clients and communities about the value and benefit of our services.
