Overarching goals of our practice include use of sustainable technologies & materials wherever possible, and the creation of buildings which are both durable and beautiful.

I am sorry, our homes are custom designs created to specifically integrate our client's programmatic requirement with their particular site. Our policy has been to not release drawings to protect both the clients privacy and our hard work.

My Plasterer is telling me he cannot tint the plaster w/o voiding the warranty that comes with it. Can I please ask what type of plaster you used and what type of tint. Thank you!!

Some glassware can be seen in the island. Other dishes have custom drawers designed to hold them beautifully, without banging around when the drawers are opened. The drawer slides are heavy duty and full extension, with a nice soft-close feature.

Not sure where you are seeing garnet, but I think you can find it here: http://www.roomandboard.com/catalog/lighting/pendants/galbraith-and-paul-zinnia-pendants
Select 24 Round 9 H Pendant from the Style menu and select "Cool" from the Color menu and I think you will see this fixture.

Great tips! Also, pay attention to the foam used in your upholstery. Standard poly foam contains flame retardant chemicals, which are particularly harmful for young children. Ask manufacturers if the foam contains flame retardants, and look for better alternatives such as soy foam, or natural latex wrapped in organic wool.

Yes, simple flat stock painted poplar, but the head casing is 5 1/2" and the side casing is 4 1/4", while the baseboard is 7 1/4" tall.
