Let your home tell the story of you.

What makes great home design is a space that tells the story of you. What you love, how you live and what is important to you are expressed through the space which you inhabit. We understand that your home is not only a very personal statement, it enhances your life, and can enrich the way you live. We approach the design of each home in a way that tells the story of you, the story of the land, and with reverence to the environment. The result is a home that is your personal respite from the world, supremely functional for how you live, and above all else, uniquely yours.

We are a boutique firm that specializes in the design of custom homes with respect for the environment, aesthetics and the expression of our client’s story through space. We do this by asking the right questions and bringing together our client’s ideas, lifestyle, and daily preferences in creative ways, crafting spaces that are both beautiful and feel like “home”. Building homes that perform well is also of utmost importance to us. Our homes are built to last, require minimal maintenance, are energy efficient, and are adaptable to both technological evolution and changing needs of the home’s occupants.
