Founding Principal Cadence Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Cadence began their start up in 2010 with one goal in mind: to operate a business based on the Golden Rule. At the time, Rebecca Bradley and Gage Couch saw a void in the South Florida design market for thoughtful, site-specific design which was responsive to both nature and the communities they serve. The startup aimed to rework how we function as designers, local citizens, and individuals—with meaning and joy. Now a team of six, Cadence continues to focus on connecting physical and social landscapes and understanding how humans and the built environment can make a positive impact on nature.
