Revitalizing communities means designing not on an individual level,
but on a holistic scale.

At once drawing on artistic sensibilities and pragmatic concerns, architecture is the art of reconciliation: combining organizational systems, scale, materials, colors, light and articulation to provide shelter and service to occupants in an economical configuration of structure and space that satisfies program requirements. Beauty meets purpose and plan. Design.

We aim to improve the human experience with buildings that complement and enrich their surroundings. We look for personality and meaning in the building’s context that may have social or cultural significance to inform and direct design. Understanding the setting and using it to guide the outcome of the architecture is vital for a strong and sustained outcome.


We are trained to recognize and respect the idiosyncrasies that define a place.. 

We analyze cultural heritage and identify character-defining features that determine a building’s significance and value. Thus the restoration of old buildings — and often their rehabilitation for new uses — brings cultural, environmental and economic value to their communities.

One of our primary ambitions is to preserve historic buildings. As architectural historians, we look at what the past can teach us, transmitting this understanding to future generations by saving and enhancing old buildings.


Our goal in planning communities is to bring residents together and foster pride of place.
