"We strive to create environments that are serene, minimal, warm and sophisticated. We design and build projects exploring relationships between the built and the natural landscape. Our clients typically identify themselves within their environments by an acute awareness of the natural boundaries: ground, horizon and sky. Comparably, the built boundaries expressed in architecture consist of floors, walls and ceilings. By introducing the built into the natural, we explore the topological relationships of how architecture is situated in, on or above the ground. Views and connections from the interior to the exterior landscape are critical, and play an important role in the design process."
