The Firm

We love what we do. Everyone here is passionate about creating architecture that harmonizes with the natural world and resonates with our clients.

People

Each project has a partner and a project manager who lead the design and nurture it from start to finish. We are a close-knit group of architects and artists emphasizing trust, mutual respect and cross-pollination of ideas. And while the atmosphere is informal, we’re known for excellence in all aspects of our practice.

“I believe in energetically committing oneself to the design problem with the resolve to find the best possible solution.”

“Most buildings tend to blend in and thus remain silent.  A few designs speak to the observer or occupant.  Then, there are those rare gems that sing and leave us speechless.”
