The idea of combining occupancies has been proven successful in towns and cities for thousands of years. Along with the benefits of sustainability, vibrancy, and 24-hour land use, mixed-use buildings spread market risk across multiple sectors. Quality mixed-use design requires a keen knowledge of the various occupancies and support functions. DIAP has designed mixed-use structures since its inception, which means that DIAP has over two decades of experience in designing complex mixed-use projects.
Carefully considering the needs of each project and the potential of the surrounding area, DIAP produces fresh, relevant buildings that enliven and transform neighborhoods. These site-specific designs are as diverse and individual as the cities, clients, and purposes they serve. These buildings achieve a balance of uses for optimal economic synergy and reflect the conditions of the site and the surrounding area. This form of development is critical for achieving walkability and 24/7 land use, which translates into a space where individuals can live, work, and socialize. This is a key component of sustainability because it creates structures which will be fully utilized for years to come.
