Starting at the Site
We recognize that each site possesses an unique spirit and character. Our designs relate to and cultivate this natural spirit. Always sensitive to context, we design buildings that engage their setting by conceiving the outdoor spaces in concert with the interiors. Solar orientation, prevailing wind patterns, flora and fauna are important considerations as well as site access, parking, zoning regulations and design guidelines. Whether the site is a remote wooded glen or the infill of an urban block, we design structures that maximize the site’s amenities and enrich their natural setting.
The Building Matters
Our goal is to create interesting and efficient structures that are inspiring, functional and comfortable. We are committed to energy conservation with a tendency towards incorporating simple and economical solutions into our buildings. We have extensive experience in the adaptive reuse of materials and pride ourselves in selecting building materials for their aesthetic as well as their environmental impact. Through close attention to detail, we execute the design intent at a fine scale. We remain active with our clients throughout the construction to ensure the quality of the project. Working closely with clients and the contractors, we resolve questions and make modifications as needed to optimize design opportunities and resolve construction issues.
