Quality residential design is perhaps the most complex and difficult project type.
The design of retail space where you enter, conduct your business and leave is far different than a space where your most significant hours are spent.  Your home might be a place of gathering for friends and family.   It might require a large investment.
It could also be a place where you will spend the rest of your life.

Doug Guiling, AIA
Architectural Design –

Life is a journey,  and the rich patterns of everyday life should be reflected in the design and sequence of spaces for the buildings we occupy.   Therefore, the overriding philosophy that drives good architectural design is an organic solution, generated from within.   Connection with the outside world, human grounded geometric proportions, and logical sequencing of spaces all must be taken into consideration to provide quality design for a meaningful human experience.

Too often today design is less meaningful when the front door is opened and the mystery of what lies beyond is over instantly.   Spatial proportions are disregarded, resulting in awkward uncomfortable sensations.   Meaningful design of any kind requires a depth of thought.

Organizing the depth of design requiredeconomically, and transferring those solutions into the field is a service we provide.
