Founded in 2007, Sharon Davis Design exists to design extraordinary buildings that transform communities. The firm’s work for nonprofit organizations represents a new model of design, in which innovation is measured in both social benefit and aesthetic accomplishment. Its work has gained renown for its ability to harmonize with both the natural and built environments, as well as its cost-effective, environmentally conscious approach to lighting, heating, plumbing, and water resources. The firm ultimately measures the success of its designs by the degree to which they expand access to the fundamental human right of social justice, economic empowerment and a healthy sustainable environment.
We work with nonprofit, public, and private clients, designing projects as diverse as a hospital in Nepal, to community centers in Rwanda. The firm was named one of Metropolis magazine’s 2013 “Game Changers” for its Women’s Opportunity Center in Rwanda, and the project earned the 2011 World Architecture Festival Award “Best Future Educational Project.” Sharon Davis Design embraces the professional ideal of positively changing the way people live, both globally and locally, through multidisciplinary rigor and with compassion for the earth and humankind.
