Our mission is to work closely with our clients to achieve purposeful focus in the design of their lives, environments, and organizations.
KYO Consulting, Inc, an MWBE and HUB certified company, specializes in architectural programming and pre-design services, including visioning, strategic planning, business consulting, workplace integration, and people engagement. We specialize in defining people experiences within the cultural narratives of their organizations, and in advancing how organizational and spatial strategies evolve a team’s mission.
Our success is based on our ability to understand the impact space has on
the quality of the human experience. We:
- Listen, observe, and live with our client to understand how space shapes culture, to define how behavioral protocols profile architectural experiences, and to preserve and enhance the cultural content of a group or organization
- Assemble a multitude of requirements visually, poetically, experientially, and numerically to assist in decision-making
- Lead discussions and reflect back insights about a group’s use of space, culture, and processes
- Create scenarios to understand all viable options
- Synthesize and balance observations, analysis, and requests into a solution that achieves consensus
- Communicate decisions and create feedback loops that improve outcomes through co-creation
We extract, amplify, evolve the DNA of a group, company, institution to fuel the design exercise. This step is an imperative, ideally before site selection, RFP writing, and design team / project management team selection. It can also be started as part of the design process itself to inform the rest of the life cycle of the building all the way to facility operations. A clear narrative advances the organizational development of teams as well as the development of space. It leads to bringing to life the core ideas in the company’s mission. [Additional Details]

Portfolio and Facility Planning
KYO works with our clients to map the type, quantity, and location of spaces needed to achieve business objectives. Planning involves a comparison of actual and potential performance of spaces in a real estate portfolio and is tailored to an organization’s specific geographic, cultural, and process needs. With the establishment of a baseline – understanding of existing facilities – we create a gap analysis and establish a plan for future needs. [Additional Details]
Research and Benchmarking
Our team thrives in compiling, analyzing, and using financial, cultural, spatial, and technological data in the design of environments – all with human experience at the center. We use data from industry leaders and top academic organizations to create platforms of innovation and conversations that advance a company’s mission statement as well as create a feedback loop allowing design to act as an accelerator.
