“The quiet moments can be the loudest”

- Adam Ferguson

We recognize the emotional impact of our surroundings and the ability of architecture to enhance everyday life. The spaces we create have an artful balance of aesthetics and utility and are deeply connected to the natural patterns of the sun and wind. We celebrate the craft of construction and the challenging process of building. While we enjoy designing new spaces, we also find intrinsic beauty in existing buildings and intelligent ways to revive them. The office is intentionally small in order to maintain a close connection to clients and projects.
