Christopher Haedt, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+CPrincipalDesignGroup
Chris's passion for design stems from his belief that architecture is part of a larger whole. Chris strives for balance: balancing the needs of clients with how the spaces created will fit into the larger societal whole. He is passionate about the opportunity for space to have a positive impact on its inhabitants, especially in healthcare where staff can be steeped in stress and patients are often at their most vulnerable. Chris communicates his progress as he works with healthcare clients to overcome challenges and reach consensus throughout design. In his work, He gets the opportunity to tackle the challenges of healthcare. What drives him is to see how he can help push the conversation past "what we have done" or "what we are doing" to "where are we going" or "where do we want to be". He has built long lasting relationships with his clients because they know he will constantly challenge them as he does himself!
