We are more than a studio, more than architects, more than designers, we are a movement - a movement that creates the right solutions that perform beyond expectation, beyond definition. Our firm is built on the simple principle of enhancing every aspect of the human experience.
In 2007, founding principal Jonathan O’Neil Cole had a vision to open a practice devoted to strategy-oriented projects and client-centered relationships. As experts in an array of architectural types, we have focused our practice on community enhancement, specialty projects, and sports facility design. Just as a pendulum is smooth and balanced, in perpetual motion and elegant harmony, this visual metaphor aptly describes our design philosophy and process, our ability to capture the vibrant interaction between shape, motion, and form.
Although we are a small firm, a key differentiation between Pendulum and large firms is the fact that when you select Pendulum you get dedicated and direct involvement of the principal owner of the firm. We will NOT show up to the interview and make promises of principal involvement and then pass responsibility off to a junior staff member once we’ve been awarded the job. Our principal owner is a “working principal” so the high expectations we have outlined for our staff is the same expectation of our principal as it relates all aspects of project delivery including sketching, drafting, 3D modeling, project documentation, and exhibiting an overall knowledge of advanced industry technology and market trends.
