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.

Thank you for this wonderful article! We are renovating a 1911 cottage and the architect has suggested floating the kitchen sink over a low existing window. I was feeling a little hesitant to do this but having seen your article I feel confident that it's the right thing to do. Also great to get tips on preserving the original fabric of an old house.

How easy is it to operate a double hung window with a sink floated in front of a low window? The advantage would be the ability to clean under the sink. When we lived in a turn of the century bungalow with the original cabinets, the base of the sink cabinet was the floor. There were door but no cabinet floor. It made it easy to clean under the sink.
