We make places where you live your life and make your memories. Perhaps we make art. Our architecture strives to balance the necessary and delightful – work that is creative, functional, socially and environmentally responsible, and practical; hopefully, it is even fun. We believe it communicates to people in powerful and profound ways.

The advantage of working with our small practice is that you get to work directly with the principal architect and his wealth of experience spanning more than 32 years.

Since our founding in 2003, we have completed a wide range of disparate project types; however, we have concentrated on adaptive reuse and commercial renovation projects. At times we work on modern residential. We find rehabilitation work challenging but the right thing to do. The complex nature of reconstruction demands intense coordination and management with our clients, engineering consultants, qualified contractors, and even code officials. Preserving and adding to an existing structure is often more rewarding rather than starting from scratch. Those values do not negate taking on commissions for new construction, yet it demands a better argument to defend disturbing an untouched site when so many remaining structures need help.

The process is driven not by style but by analyzing the client’s needs by carefully considering the site and program, space exploration, materials, and creative ways to meet the budget. We search to develop clear, distinguished work informed by the craft of construction, sustainability, culture, and technology. Despite the most stringent budgets, we aim to exceed the client’s vision.

Our collaborative approach engages the client and consultants during the entire design process. We also believe that contractors, craftspersons, vendors, and all other participants can contribute at all levels of the design process. A patient, considerate approach with respectful exchanges between stakeholders leads to the best decision-making and authentic, mature work.
