Naturally Modern Homes. Best of Houzz 2018 for both Design and Service, for five years running. We are a residential architect focusing on homes that relate beautifully to their surroundings, with sculpted lines and timeless materials. We bring Nature into each of our houses through expansive south-facing windows with axial views to draw the eye to the outside. Our modern houses are designed to minimize their environmental footprint, with innovative materials and techniques for energy and water conservation.

The success of our projects depends on a strong relationship with our clients and teamwork with the builders. We are good listeners, understanding our clients' intentions so that we can translate their goals into a design tailored to them. Each project is sculpted to the client's way of living or working, inspiring a range of styles from the most sophisticated modern to beautifully crafted traditional designs, often with inventive cross-overs. Our hand-rendered drawings, models and computer simulations work together to ensure that our clients understand how a concept will work and accurately convey the project's look and feel when built.
