We are a small architectural office partnership in which design is of primary interest and concern. Solving the problems of living and working in the most beautiful space is our goal in all of our work. We have always believed that successful projects are the result of a team effort with our clients. They decide how they want to live or work and how much they want to spend; we know what looks good and how to put it all together.

The process we go through in every case starts with a thorough exploration of all of the alternatives, moving through the major planning decisions to what things look like and on to deciding on the smallest feature. Our construction drawings and specifications are extremely detailed and definitive, having studied, along with our clients, every component of the project down to the smallest detail. Contractors using our drawings have very few decisions to make, since the work has been thoroughly defined. We will only take on a project if we are also involved at the construction phase to insure that the design that we all slaved over will be built.

Throughout the process we have considered and suggested furniture layouts since we consider the use of any space has to work with its furnishings, which should be an integral part of every architectural design.

The office has received residential design awards from the American Institute of Architects and has had work published in this country and Japan.
