Office Description

The Architecture:

We have built a reputation on providing creative and innovative solutions to challenging problems. We strive to create high quality design that balances the conceptual with functional concerns.  With a focus on ideas and process, our designs evolve as unique adaptations to existing constraints, and consider multiple disciplines including interiors, landscape, construction, and real estate development. Currently our work includes commercial warehouse renovations, office tenant improvements, and residential projects with the majority of our work being new construction of single family dwellings and multi-family apartments. Our clients are a mix of homeowners and developers; we offer fee development services; and are involved in our own development efforts.

The Studio:

We are a young and energetic small studio with bootstrapping origins and ethos. Our studio environment can be described as rather light-hearted and sometimes rough around the edges, but we are also a diverse and tight knit and group that takes our work very seriously. We are highly collaborative, and encourage individuals to take ownership of process and projects.We support individual growth by engaging them completely in the project process, from initial concepts through construction and occupancy. We value efficiency and life-work balance; we work hard during regular hours, and generally do not request overtime effort.
