We are an architectural practice engaged in the design of a broad range of domestic projects with the intent of not only satisfying our clients’ programmatic building goals and needs, but also creating beauty, intrinsic value, and a timeless quality to the built environment. Above all, our intention is to create buildings and spaces that lift and inspire the human spirit through design, craft, and architecture. The practice of architecture involves both art and science, and the act of creating architecture requires a team of professionals and artisans. A successful project includes not only the design of the building, but also the decoration of its interior spaces, the design of its gardens, and the craft of its construction. As art, architecture can at times be transcendent and, at the least, create beauty by a thoughtful consideration of the formal elements of composition and the building’s relationship to its natural environment. We strive to make our work appear effortless and inevitable; that it has a sense of authenticity and fits into a larger context. That context may be a room or addition fitting into an existing building, a new house or building fitting into an existing neighborhood community, or a country retreat fitting into its natural surroundings. As science, our practice is concerned with the intention and execution of the project, its program and economics, building craft, structure, environmental comfort, and a stewardship of resources. While our work addresses contemporary programmatic issues of use and technology, it is informed by the classical architectural and craft tradition, be it formal or casual. We study precedent so that we may bring the lessons of history to the drawing table and continue to build upon those traditions in the present and into the future.
