While this studio is intent on realizing full-service residential and mixed-use projects of all types and scales, (see projects, opp), smaller studies can often make big impacts; can lead to making larger projects credible; and can establish a working relationship between developer and architect.

Entitlement Study Goodale Architecture Planning

Role:  Design Partner for Gonzalez Goodale Architects


Prior to embarking on a project, with its comcomitant investment of resources, it is useful that client and architect develop a comprehensive understanding of entitlement constraints and obstacles to a project's development - zoning and building codes, governing commissions, local design guidelines, stakeholders, utilities, and existing conditions on (and below) the ground.  Through these entitlement reviews, client and architect are prepared to explore the physical potentials of a site while being responsive to as many codified and/or obviously-political requirements as possible.

Housng Capacity Study Goodale Architecture Planning

Combined in a single pre-design phase, Entitlement Review and Capacity Studies are an intensive but affordable way to explore a project's potentials without deep initial commitments on the part of either client or architect.  At best, they result in a shared vision for the project that can form the basis of an inspired working relationship.


In tandem with promising entitlement research, it's prudent to initiate capacity studies.  In the most prosaic terms, the capacity study shows what will fit on the site, addressing entitlements, meeting program, and projecting a formal architectural vision.

Additional abbreviated preliminary studies that this studio offers, in conjunction with entitlement reviews, include development of facility space programs, and conceptual testing of more programmatically complex projects, such as adaptive re-use of existing facilities and mixed-use commercial master plans.   With a background in strong background in civic projects, the studio brings an understanding of urban planning, infrastructure, and strategies that best enhance both the development and the public life surrounding it
