Our projects range from kitchens to towns and from homes to hospitals. Our services include home design, interior design, multi-family and commercial building design, as well as community design, planning consulting, design review, and development support.
We strongly believe that improving the human habitat supports and enhances the natural environment. Our firm includes extensive experience with energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive building systems. We believe in the value of tradition and technology, and in the necessity of learning from the past to shape the future.
We know that towns and neighborhoods are more efficient than conventional suburbs and shopping centers. We believe that a smaller home can live large if the plan is well thought out. We know we can preserve resources and save our clients' money through efficient design and detail. We believe our portfolios prove this.
We were among the first to work on customization of the SmartCode for a community, and we continue to work with the SmartCode and form-based development coding. We believe that every project requires a fresh outlook and, sometimes, a new set of tools.
