Our Core Philosophies

Join our mission to build better communities.

We are makers of the built environment, and we want that environment to be healthy. DSGW believes in respect. It’s how we show we care. We want to understand our communities and be able to create compassionate designs for the people they serve. Our Values are at the heart of our employees and it fuels them everyday.

We know and respect that there is wisdom in the communities we serve. We honor the diverse cultures of those who will inhabit the spaces we create by leveraging community knowledge, valuing truth and working with humility.

We listen before we plan. We understand before we design. We connect before we create. And when we don’t have everything we need in-house, we find expert partners to enhance our team.We’re our clients’ partners. We’re our communities’ partners. Trust is how exceptional work is built.

We treat sustainability as a standard, not an afterthought. It doesn’t end with certifications – it ends when we’ve responsibly designed and built an environment that is healthy for the Earth, respectful to the land and healthy for its occupants. As stewards of the natural environment … of our clients and partners … of responsible projects, we believe that all that is built well, ends well.

We design with empathy, putting ourselves in the end users’ shoes and truly understanding their needs and the impacts of our solutions on their daily lives. We are grounded in making spaces that look beautiful and function even better. We find opportunities to add value by using our expertise to deliver what our clients need when they need it.

Bring your passion — we’ve got you covered.

Our scope of expertise is wide, we will support your journey both formally and informally through development efforts and mentorship. Plus, we offer some of the best benefits in the industry – and some that are bit unconventional. We don’t just design for wellness initiatives, we embrace them in our everyday lives.
