Statement:
Design Workshop is a firm born in the pursuit of ideas. Our founders Joe Porter and Don Ensign, while professors at North Carolina State, set a course to engage clients, staff and colleagues in a collaborative process they labeled “design workshop.” For four decades Design Workshop has provided landscape architecture, urban design and strategic services to clients in North America and throughout the world. We are committed to creating special places that meet today's needs and that are sustainable environments for all time. We have developed a methodology called DW Legacy Design®. This proprietary process seeks to imbue every project with a balance between environmental sensitivity, community connection, artistic beauty and economic viability that demonstrates measureable results.
