A Conversation Between Friends

Prospect started as a conversation between friends. Partners John, Danny and Matt wanted to create a studio where people felt empowered by a collaborative practice and inspired by the spaces they designed. This vision has resulted in a place where challenges are approached with an open mind and success is measured in community value.

Each partner brings his own unique approach and experience to Prospect. John offers an intimate knowledge of the West and decades’ worth of experience, while Danny’s youthful dynamism and outside perspective energize the firm. Matt’s measured approach and technical aptitude bring even the most complex projects to life. Together, they leverage their complementary skill sets to provide the best possible solutions for their clients.
