The knowledge and experience gained during our early years as designer-builders is the foundation of our practice, and we believe is what distinguishes our design services from other firms. We know how buildings are made, and we apply our hands-on knowledge to every individual design.
Our process always begins with a thorough understanding of the existing resources. Whether it’ is a piece of land, a piece of furniture, or an existing structure, we do the hard work required to recognize the value of what is already there. This is the beginning of any sustainable design process.
We continue to enjoy the challenge of remodeling and rehabilitating structures of all types, sizes, and vintages. We appreciate the lessons that can accompany work on older buildings, and often our design work for new buildings incorporates these lessons.
We study and appreciate quality design of all kinds. Our work draws on a wide and ever-growing body of influences, and is therefore always developing. The common denominator in our work is not any particular style, but rather quality of light and space, thoughtful material choices, and attention to important details.
