We practice architecture in order to evoke pleasure and emotion through the ritual of daily life. Our design is about the lives of particular people as expressed in a specific place. Deep, meaningful personalization is the touchstone of our work, through which the owner continually discovers delight in the home.
The experience of a home shouldn’t be limited by walls; it should extend through every interior detail and beyond the property line to embrace scene and season. That’s why our practice includes Landscape, Interiors, and Architecture; by coordinating these disciplines we derive the best expression for our client’s life on their site.
Considering our client’s daily rhythm along with the unique properties of their site, we find their “best places” — the best moments. Linking them dynamically throughout the site reveals patterns relevant to their lives. Through careful attention to these patterns, we create the functional areas and transitions of the home’s plan, integrating the existing light, views, and climate. The result is graceful movement through an infinite sequence of lived moments, a pattern for living.
A natural and inevitable quality arises, offering easy movement and ever-changing views. The result is a living structure, in which the clients themselves become the essential participant in the design, continually renewing their experience of the home.
