“Think Architecture has been instrumental in helping us showcase our developments and differentiate ourselves from our competitors,” said Andrea. “They never resort to the simple ‘cut, copy, and paste’ approach. They understand the importance of design, which enhances our developments’ aesthetic and functionality, setting us apart in the market.”

Lotus attributes some of their most successful projects to collaborations with Think Architecture. One is the Lotus Republic, a downtown Salt Lake City apartment block with a heated infinity pool, gym, and a cocktail bar, Citizens Cocktails and Kitchen.

“It was a tremendous collaborative effort; we are immensely proud of it,” said Andrea. “Think was incredible to work with, always responsive.”
