Let’s start down the path of discovery. Close your eyes and imagine the ideal backdrop for your unique, dynamic lifestyle. Together, let’s embark on a journey of discovery – one that leads to a home that will inspire and restore you.
You likely won’t see a home in our portfolio that perfectly matches your vision, and we think that’s a very good thing. Your ideal home will be custom to you, and unique to singular influences of place and family narrative. It should be your own.
Homes of purpose should be naïve to style. In other words, we set out not to achieve a prescribed “look,” for your home, but instead distill the essential qualities that you find compelling and create an environment embodied with those values, ideals, and aesthetics.
Residential architecture is intrinsically connected to, and reliant on, its natural setting. Our approach seeks to embrace the landscape — its views, its colors, and its character. We prioritize visual and experiential connections to the outdoors, and partner with some of the finest landscape architects in the industry to maximize opportunities for creating them.
We think comprehensive interior design is integral to the fulfillment of a fully realized home. Our team is fluent in the language of interior architecture, fixtures, finishes, furnishings, and décor. We collaborate with our in-house team and with trusted industry colleagues to bring forth an interior atmosphere commensurate with and complementary to the unique architecture and natural setting of each project.
The work of artists and skilled artisans adds immeasurable meaning, beauty, and experience to a home. Our integrative process anticipates and incorporates opportunities for the proper display (and lasting enjoyment) of fine art. We work with a diverse network of artists, gallerists, and consultants to procure extraordinary objects and to commission custom pieces.
We design your home with a careful consideration of how each part will be made and assembled, and will rely on the talent and expertise of contractors and craftspeople at every stage of the design process. We deeply value the custom details and pieces that carpenters, artisans, and specialty trades will bring to the success of the project and encourage involving them as early in the process as possible.
With more than 35 years’ experience creating houses for discerning clients in challenging and protected environments, you can count on us to hear your vision, to manage the myriad details, navigate the red tape, and to be relentless in pursuit of that reality.
We wanted to tell you what a magnificent house you designed. We love everything about it. The light, the lines, the feeling one has in every room of being part of this gorgeous environment.
