Architecture is a harmonious composition of five elements: space, light, materials, connections and concept. Architecture is theater; it is space that evokes emotional response. Architecture is substance with style.

Architecture is all this and more. It is the connection of building to the earth, both physically (through structure) and metaphorically (through shape and form). It is the subtle embodiment of function executed in a dynamic composition of materials.

The art of architecture is the balancing of these qualities with the programmatic needs of the client and the restrictions imposed by the site, the budget and the building code. Quality architecture is always the result of a dynamic partnership between the owner, the architect and the builder. These are the basic requirements and essential elements of every successful project.
