Developing Your Vision

What’s your dream? Is it a one-of-a-kind contemporary-style renovation of your existing home; a stately new Federal-style colonial; a revival of a classic Victorian; or a custom French provincial? Whatever you want, we can make it happen. Take a look at our portfolio and you’ll see that we’ve created homes of many different genres, styles and sizes.

That’s because our work starts with listening. We take the time to learn about you and your life. We understand that the needs of an active family are different from those of empty nesters. When designing a home, we make sure our floor plans, traffic flow and site lines reflect your needs. What good is a massive formal living room for a family with young children? And why create a large master suite on the second floor when the primary residents are empty nesters who want to age in place?

We will design your home in layers: we start with the footprint of the space we have to work with. Then we design how the rooms will fill that footprint—the living spaces, the kitchen, the bedrooms, the baths. We revise and refine as we go, making sure we reflect your desires and the realities of the construction process. And then we make sure that the home’s exterior, from its rooflines to its windows and doors, is integrated into the entire design.
