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.

What an informative idea book! I've been admiring the mesh elevator walls I've begun to see in office buildings and wondered where to find. Thank you for listing company names as well!

It actually doesn't have a stain. Its con part redwood left to weather naturally, so its achieves that look in the image over time.

I haven't worked with motorized hinges before on furniture/built-ins, so I am afraid I may not be much help. A cabinet maker or someone who directly deals with building/installing hinges. An experienced carpenter or contractor may have a good idea as well.

The sunset photo is taken from under the pergola or veranda (not sure what to call it, but it is attached on one side to the house!) at our White Surf home in Vero Beach Florida. The next photo is taken from the enterainment area on the ground floor - looking out at the resort pool. Final is the ideabook link which contains more pictures of this house, just in case anyone is interested in looking at our design equivalent of baby photos.
