Business Description
Malcolm is a Bay Area native with an intimate understanding of its regional building styles and climates. Educated at UC Berkeley, his strong appreciation of the craft of building goes hand in hand with thoughtful stewardship of resources. He takes pride in creative problem solving through simple, elegant solutions. Employing a timeless vocabulary and a restrained palette, Malcolm’s projects over the last 20 years have earned multiple awards from the American Institute of Architects and publication in Dwell, Elle Decore, Sunset Magazine, California Home & Design, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

Our firm’s design philosophy is rooted in the Bay Region Tradition – site specific, unaffected in style, with strong interior/exterior connections. The play of natural light is of paramount importance in our work, as are the unique challenges of constrained spaces, urban infill, adaptive reuse, and green building strategies. Whether we begin with bare land or an existing structure, our projects develop their character through careful interpretation and sensitivity to each client's program, orientation, context, and climate. We bring warmth to modern design.

@razorrudy: I have this in my own kitchen. The sash fits just barely below the countertop - no stool or apron. I wanted to be able to see as clearly as possible out these windows, not having to raise them even enough to accommodate trim. I can't imagine what safety issue there would be - you're simply using your countertop essentially as the stool.

I would think having at least one low counter, to fit under a low window sill, would be an asset in coming years as the population ages and more people have issues dealing with normal to high counter tops, due to wheelchairs, etc.. If one cooks in large pots, as in making stock, a low counter can be a godsend.
