My name is Anne Beatrice Baker. I started ATMO Architecture because I believe that the built environment has the capacity to transform space into sanctuary, incorporate beauty into our everyday routines, and connect us to nature through sensory experience. My greatest happiness comes from doing this for my clients.
ATMO is the Greek root of atmosphere - a word that evokes the distinctive yet intangible quality we all experience in spaces that stimulate our senses, our reverence for beauty, and our connection to nature.
My focus in architecture is centered in atmosphere. This means rather than immediately discussing doors, walls, and windows, I begin the design process by really understanding you, and identifying the atmospheres and spatial flow that will best support you as an individual, a family, or a business. This understanding informs each and every design detail of your project and translates to a finished space that aligns with your lifestyle, aesthetic, and daily routines.
My design approach is rooted in the following principles:
-Architecture affects people mentally, emotionally, and physically, and has the capacity to support human well-being.
-Architecture is a synthesis of aesthetic expression, sensitivity to context, and the sensory experience of space.
-Architecture can facilitate a human connection to nature.
Prior to founding ATMO, I worked in architecture firms around the world on new residences, residential remodels and additions, and various public, institutional, and commercial projects.
