We apply a collaborative design process to a wide range of environments and building types.

As designers, we thrive on complex projects and nurture ardent creativity.
Welcome to CORE.

CORE is proud to announce its 25th Anniversary #COREDC25! We invite you to celebrate with us as we are launching a yearlong campaign to reflect and look ahead.

All funds raised during our 25th anniversary campaign will benefit DC Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that transforms thousands of pounds of food every day into nutritious meals for our community. Learn more and donate today.

For 25 years, we have strived to make our clients successful by translating their dreams into realities. CORE has always focused on creating vibrant built environments that enhance lives and create memories. Our adventurous spirit led to new challenges and project typologies, which resulted in a culture of exploration and a strong, broad-reaching portfolio full of diversity and creativity.

As we look forward to the next 25 years, we commit to being relentless explorers; to maintain our creative leadership and our roots as a collaboratively driven firm.

If you have worked with us in the past, we offer you our most heartfelt thanks. You have helped shape us and we would not be here without you! We love having clients with the passion to match our own and invite you to collaborate with us again. For new clients, we hope you will trust in our passion, vision, and experience to work with us in our next 25 years.

Stay tuned for exciting updates and events as we celebrate throughout the year and continue to COLLABORATE + EXPLORE!
