Our residential work includes finely-detailed major renovations and additions to homes as well as new grand homes built from the ground up. Projects are highlighted by a cliffside Victorian style house, and a Georgian style estate set near the woods with an expansive lawn and entry court.
Commercial work has included an award-winning pedestrian-scale building facade renovation and a well-positioned police station with vaulted ceilings, a covered terrace, and lakeside views. Other projects have included a corporate archive tenant fit-up including a museum, an office fitness room, and a gourmet deli.
Our focus now is on the design and construction of fine country homes, lake houses, and grand estates integrated into the landscape. We have been influenced by nature in our design sensibility. Always collaborating with the owner, we draw from the natural materials and details found in the Shingle, Stick, Craftsman, and Storybook styles.
