Residential Architecture and Construction

Light, form, space, access, community, privacy, and view are all elements that make up our design ideals. Initially, we approach a design and build project with all the elements being equal. As the project evolves, each element takes on its own identity. Every one of these homes responded to these elements differently, according to its unique location and the client's needs.

The family required a high level of visual and acoustic privacy from traffic, aircraft noise and the public golf course across the street. The two-story structure responds to distant views to the south while opening to intimate garden views to the north.
