The Art of Architecture

Our approach is best characterized by thoughtful attentiveness to distinct aspects of aesthetics, instead of a specific architectural style.  We blend the intuitive with the rational while uniting how spaces work with how they feel.  The following components contribute significantly to the success of our design. 

BEAUTY

 

A structure is transformed from merely functional into something delightful to the eyes by artistically composing specific elements with attention to scale, proportion, and alignment.

FORM

 

Clearly articulated volumes, instead of just creating internal and external spaces, address the building’s function while creating dramatic and evocative structures.

RHYTHM

 

The spacing, repetition, and interplay of elements enrich and deepen otherwise simple components.

LIGHT

 

From dawn until dusk, light continually changes the colors and moods within a space. We harness that light to energize the character of each space. After the sun goes down, thoughtfully composed lighting creates a whole new series of moods, both inside and outside, expanding the appreciation of your home.

PLACE

 

We pay careful attention to the relationship of the house to the site and the relationship of the interior to the exterior. For homes, this involves providing places of refuge as well as places of prospect: your vantage place to oversee your world.

MATERIALS


Rich materials, honestly expressed and artistically joined, become more than just basic elements of construction; they are the means through which beauty, form, light, rhythm, and place are expressed.

In addition to recognizing these components, our designs are carefully guided by our client’s needs and desires.  The end result always reflects the client’s vision and our architectural artistry.
