Business Description
The Architectural style is simple and warm with an English spirit. There is an Old-world charm and timeless air about his homes. In the construction of the designs you will always find earthy textures and natural materials.

There is a simple beauty in discovering visitors through the soft crunch of tires on the crunched stone of a motor court. Simplicity pampers the senses, does not overload. We find simple elegance in organic warmth of sea grass on bare feet. The seamless marriage of the best of the old with the fine restraint of the modern. It is the juxtaposition of the fresh minimal use of stone against the worn patina of a 19th-century cabinet. It is bone china against brushed steel. It is the light filtered through a clean paper cone, the sound of crickets, the barest separation of man from his world by great reaching panes of glass. It is the sleekness of that automobile against the old crushed stone. Clean lines. Warm materials. Pleasant textures. Gentle sound.

It seems that, somewhere along the way, ours has become a cluttered world. We inhabit cluttered spaces. And, in many ways, our thinking reflects that environment with noise - with gadgetry and ornament. And the spaces we fill are distracting. We seek balance in our lives with things. But, balance is found in the art of restraint. By definition, elegance is the height of art. Elegance and opulence must never be confused - for one chokes the sensuality from the other. When a space is in harmony it resonates. It beckons peace. Creates romance. It gives quiet drama to our living. It enhances our spirit.

Life is filled with choice. We can choose to fill our world with things. Or we can choose to simplify. Simple design creates peace. We create spaces in our world that brings us out - that sell our souls. We create environments that give us pause, and deep breaths, comfort, and powerful thinking - spaces that make it feel in our world. Organic. Not like something struggling at the surface of it. Places of texture, of balanced beauty, of old-world sensuality dancing in modern spaces, Welcome. Embrace calm restraint in a world that needs it.
