Firm Philosophy

Sustainably Beautiful.


We assist our clients in site selection, helping find locations which best suite their overall lifestyle goals, and balance those goals with environmental stewardship.  We encourage locations that minimize the need to drive to daily work and play.  We study siting of the dwelling to allow proper solar orientation and minimize the structures’ impact  on the immediate and surrounding ecosystem.  We design and specify building envelope assemblies which create maximum thermal isolation, thereby minimizing the structures’ external energy demands.

Modern, Not Contemporary.


We work to design environments which avoid the (con)temporary.  We work with you to select materials and details which age with durability and dignity. It’s not about a great image for our portfolio –it’s about a great home that enhances and endures your daily life.

Many Voices, Singular Vision.


We work as a team with the client and building contractor to understand the possibilities and limitations of each portion of a project, including materials, assemblies, budget and schedule. We understand the realization of a successful project to be an interwoven collaboration of client, designer, and craftsman.
