Design philosophy: High impact design that's low impact on the environment.
Long before people starting calling it "green", we called it our design philosophy: to design and build in a way that was mindful to the environment, yet made bold visual statements.
To never compromise the natural beauty of a site and to preserve the landscape, no matter how difficult the building process may be.
To design residential and commercial space so energy efficient, the benefit would be felt in both the pocketbook and in the conscience.
To design in a way that is as sustainable as possible, and to keep learning and creating new ways of achieving sustainability.
To use traditional forms in a contemporary manner, combining stunning design with practical living.
And to bring this respect and appreciation to our renovation and restoration work. We love the challenge of bringing yesterday's grand architecture up to our high energy standards.
If you want to do what we do, make a big impact architecturally, but low impact environmentally, meet with us.
