Project Design Services

We believe design is embedded in everything we do. Beyond the aesthetic of lines, shape, and color, design is the way in which things are assembled. Be it a piece of art, a set of steps, a group of plants, or an entire development project.

Your project uniquely reflects your wants and needs at a location you selected. Context By Design not only melds your vision with your place, but we also meld our process with your personality to provide you the involvement you desire while delivering an effective project outcome. We design a process that fits you, addresses regulations, provides functionality, and brings your vision to reality.
