it is our hope that through the calibration of the design process, we may resist the tendency towards the preconceived idea and continue to work with our clients to develop unique environments that foster a sense of timelessness and provide a richness in which we dwell.

engage the client in the process

together, the client and architect define an architectural strategy: a framework defined by the architect and calibrated by client/user input. both the initial defining of this framework by the architect and the subsequent calibration in response to client/user input defines a process that enables us to circumvent any individual preconceptions and allow for a collectively defined outcome.

creative (mis)use of materials

by reclaiming common, ordinary or otherwise overlooked materials, removing them from their given context and [mis]using them in a new extra-ordinary way, we are able to reveal a material essence that evokes an evidence of the hand and fosters a sense of timelessness.


we feel that it is essential to investigate techniques of making that are otherwise foreign to us. therefore we often engage emerging artists and manufactures in our process so that we may embrace new methods of making and critically re-define their role in architecture.
