Business Description
As a Marin based Architecture firm we have worked throughout California to create unique and thoughtful designs. We also offer the option of creating a Design + Build solution through FORM Design + Build, our sister company. We have earned a hard won record of success in the design of single-family custom homes, entry-level home developments, and custom home communities in diverse environments ranging from the Bay Area, Santa Barbara, and Sacramento region to Baja California and the Turks and Caicos. We aim to be clear and direct in our communication with clients, who tell us one of the things they appreciate most is the interaction they have with our design team and the knowledge which is encompassed by each member of our team. All concerned, clients & designers alike, are full partners in the creative process. We use every means we can at every step of the design process to help clients “see” how an idea will play out if actually built. For instance, we use three-dimensional computer renderings as early as the Schematic Design phase. Just as important, our clients speak highly of our ability to come up with designs that are aesthetically pleasing, invariably innovative, and consistently budget conscious. Finally, we are committed to the notion that the present and most certainly the future require no less than sustainable building practices and the use of Green materials whenever they make good design, economic and environmental sense. We work hard to be informed about all of the latest sustainable technologies and Green practices so that they may be incorporated seamlessly into all of our projects.

Although we have a range of built designs, those shown here tend towards a contemporary interpretation of traditional design. Our firm has done numerous projects including many small remodels that draw on local traditions including classic Californian Bungalow design as well as Craftsman and Prairie style houses. Although we try not to simply emulate styles, we strive to be true to the traditional tenets of these styles to avoid the appearance of merely copying. We have chosen a select few projects for the site but we would be happy to forward additional information and photographs of other projects to those interested in a more traditional design appearance.
