Structure, both organizational and architectural, and how we relate to it, affects who we are and how we are.

How integrated we feel in the business we work is the same as how renewed we feel in the home we live – it can either unleash us or confine us.

A business or a building can be static or harmonious. How it feels, functions and looks are the foundations of perception, clarity and success, personally and organizationally.

Portico West creates solutions by seeing the spatial and relational interaction of the components.

Spatial thinking conceives and represents the theoretical such as the images used to explain scientific theories — the atom as a small solar system or evolution as the tree of life. These representations not only show the relationship of the components but also convey a sense of the whole that transcends the parts.

Relational thinking observes and connects the non linear, matrix relationships between parts of a whole: individual and group interaction in an organization; flow and aesthetic appeal in and between spaces in a building.

Business structures shift from positional/hierarchical models to relational models where authority is not built upon status or position but upon credibility, effectiveness and functionality in the same way that architectural structures shift from formal living and dining rooms to open living dining entertaining spaces.

Portico West creates adaptive structure, develops efficient solutions and presents results dynamically.
