Our Story & Bios

Our perspective

From the beginning, we wanted our homes to be constructed of high quality, natural materials. We wanted to endow them with the intrinsic value of universal design whenever possible. We wanted to orient toward a timeless, modern aesthetic that elicits a happy union of naturally lit interiors and smart use of space.

The spirit of our original thinking runs through our work today: uncomplicated homes for people who wish to live graciously, simply, beautifully.
