For 30 years House + House Architects have crafted intimate, personal architecture. Through careful analysis, Steven and Cathi House mold each project into a unique, magical and harmonious environment. Deeply sensitive to elements of form, color, natural light, and movement, House + House creates a tangible spirit within each home, molded to the process of living. Committed to sustainability, their work focuses on enduring design principles incorporating natural light and ventilation, passive solar heating, grey/rain water systems, recycled materials, the development of microclimates and strong connections to the outdoors.



House + House has produced a diverse body of work reflecting their passion for site specific, well choreographed buildings in California, Florida, Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. In 1989 "Architecture" magazine featured House + House in their Discovery Issue on emerging talent. Since then, they have received over 50 design awards and their work has been featured in numerous national and international publications including two monographs, "House + House Architects: Choreographing Space" (1999) and "Houses in the Sun: light movement embrace" (2008). Steven and Cathi have lectured extensively throughout the United States and Mexico, and both have served on the Dean's Advisory Board and the Advisory Council for the School of Architecture + Design at Virginia Tech. They have established CASA, The Center for Architecture, Sustainability + Art, a new study abroad program based in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.



For over 35 years they have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America documenting vernacular architecture. Their stunning book, "Mediterranean Villages: An Architectural Journey", (2004), celebrates their investigations of villages throughout the Mediterranean - the hilltowns of central Italy, the Aegean Islands of Greece, the Dalmatian coast and the Andalusian region of southern Spain.
