our story

Precipitate was founded to accelerate the architecture profession's response to the climate crisis. We invest in our people to stay at the forefront of research, design, and advocacy around climate justice so that we can bring that expertise to our clients and colleagues. Precipitate is shifting the paradigm of architectural practice towards integrative and inclusive design processes that lead to holistic and regenerative design outcomes. We are changemakers forging a path for climate action in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) industry, and our communities.


We believe that in order to design healthy buildings and communities, we must prioritize the health and well-being of our people. We are amazed at how much more productive we can be when we are able to bring our full selves to work, pour our passions into our projects, and support one another in a strong community of diverse perspectives, a brave space for new ideas. We see our clients as part of our creative community and thrive when we are collaborating and learning from one another in the pursuit of cost-effective, creative design solutions to the climate crisis.
