Services & Design Approach

We offer design services from full site and land planning to small scale schematic drawings for new homes, cabins, and remodels, in any shape and any size with an acute attention to detail. We see every project as an opportunity to improve quality of life and create sustainable and comfortable living spaces that connect the user/client with a projects natural place and surroundings.

We keep up to date with the latest green technology and trends from which we can integrate those ideas into our concepts in an effort to create near zero energy homes for a future of efficient living.

We utilize the latest 3D software for modeling and producing comprehensive construction documents for builders and contractors. This also helps us place the project in a true 3D virtual site to look at schematic design realistic views and study sun angles and shadows from the get go.

We are also in the beginning stages of establishing a true Design-Build Construction partnership with Tucker Construction for a true local custom design build experience. This will enable us to streamline the design and build process considerably, thus lowering the end cost for the client, yet giving a rich and unique living experience.

  • Site & Schematic Design

    Every architectural project is about creating space in a place. It is the heart of this 'place' for which we think of as a projects site. Our design services typically begin with a site (vacant land or an existing remodel/addition) and a need for shelter or some other problem with a three dimensional solution. We begin all projects with an in depth site analysis and due diligence about the 'place' and any factors that will govern and limit our creative pursuits. From there we take in all information needed from both the client and the site which then leads the direction of the project and creative design process.

    Other important things to consider about site design and building location:

  • Sun angles and weather conditions
  • View angle studies for space planning layout
  • Solar Orientation
  • Other site or topographic limiting factors
  • Any local codes or covenants
  • Green Design

    There are many ways to become more sustainable in our living practices. Reducing the energy consumption of your home is likely the biggest way to impact the environment for a more sustainable future moving forward.
