Our innovation takes precision, ecological and durability into mind while carefully attending to the practical and financial aspects of architecture. As residential design, construction,  practices and lifestyles continue to evolve, we carefully evaluate new technologies, products, building methods and design trends to assess how best to incorporate them within each of our designs.

Contextual Design in Architecture

We pay particular attention to each home’s natural surroundings, views and connection to place. We design in harmony and balance with site geology, solar orientation and ecology to build homes with a profound sense of place.

Existing neighborhoods also come in a wide variety of styles; and we recognize that we build in a time and place that sometimes blends a contemporary way of life with a protected historical vernacular context.

Your home should inspire and delight your local neighbors and community and offer a good, pleasing and harmonious fit. We pay attention to the unique history and character of each neighborhood setting and draw from its best qualities in appropriate, complementary and respectful ways. In our more vernacular and contextual projects, building exteriors often hint at the careful blend of vernacular, clean modern lines and individuality within.
