Residential Architectural Philosophy

In every case, we have 4 basic design goals.

  1. It's your house. Through careful program and creation of design options, we work hard to translate your dreams, needs and budget into a home that expresses you.

  2. Site specific. The unique qualities of each site, climate, solar orientation, views, distractions, contours, and vegetation are integrated with clients' needs to create solutions that truly fit and compliment the environment and site.

  3. Timeless character. About seventy-five percent of our clients come to us with a style that specifically appeals to them or is perhaps part of a neighborhood character. Because the project is "your house," our homes bring together budgets with taste, needs and site with a classic approach that doesn't date itself but instead, express an authentic character, whether the home is rural, urban, contemporary or traditional.

  4. A place to sunbathe nude. Remodeling or building new a custom home is an expensive investment. We feel that you should not have to go inside and pull the shades for privacy. Our designs take into consideration the total environment, indoor rooms to outdoor spaces, places for hobby and play, and garden landscape, from private terraces to rooftop vista opportunities.
