Architectural Design

The use of passive spaces, borrowed light, and open volumes help to create a home that feels light and airy...

  • Large window groupings are used to bring in maximum natural daylighting. When possible, we utilize clerestory windows, 2-story spaces, and translucent walls to bring natural light into every part of the home.

  • 2-story spaces create chimney effect for good airflow and passive ventilation. It also helps to create dramatic interior spaces and make a small home feel larger.

  • Open living areas and 2-story spaces give the feeling of "grand" spaces without requiring a large square footage to be built. We prefer our clients to live in smaller well-designed spaces rather than to build large homes with seldom-used rooms.

  • The majority of our projects have been urban infill sites - making our homes an ideal solution for almost any lot.
