Over the past 25 years we have refined our design practice in residential architecture in the Washington, D.C. area. Our work is driven by the psychology of space and how architecture can improve lives through thoughtful design. We are committed to sustainable practices in hopes of reducing our impact on the environment.

 

Our designs emphasize the importance of natural daylight, clear spatial flow, and a strong relationship to the outdoors. We focus on additions, remodels, and new homes, with a careful consideration of spatial relationships, scale, and neighborhood context. We strive to introduce energy efficient materials and systems to reduce operating costs. 

 

Our services for executing a project include: defining the scope of work, providing design and feasibility, bidding, construction documentation, architectural detailing, permitting, meetings with contractors and suppliers, product selection and onsite consultation. We prioritize effective communication through 3D models, immersive presentations, and virtual reality tools for design and construction. Our team provides design expertise and guidance on all aspects of the project to achieve the look, feel, and function of the collaborative vision.

 

A construction project is likely to be one of the largest investments a client will make in their home. The ultimate success of this process is based on a unified team of architect, contractor, and homeowner, through trust, communication, and collaboration. We will be the clients’ advocate every step of the way, ensuring a professional relationship catered to their unique project needs.
