A Commitment to Green, Sustainable Architecture

We draw on an interdisciplinary team of design professionals to give you the highest level of expertise, concentrating on a small number of clients in order to bring each project the attention it deserves.

For two generations, my family has worked in the building trades, everything from construction to landscape architecture, and all with a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability. We are delighted that we found Chris Kellogg, an architect just around the corner who shares our values, and has the discipline and experience to realize our goals, someone who sees the bigger picture and follows through on all the details. We've worked on several projects together, and he gives the same kind of attention to every one whether large or small. That's why we've made him a vital part of our dream project, a PHIUS certified apartment complex right in our home town.

Our Philosophy

A commitment to green, sustainable architecture means more than using resources responsibly today to build structures that use energy responsibly tomorrow. Because people care for things they love, for sustainable architecture to become the norm, it must capture the imagination. This makes ugliness impractical and beauty a necessity.

With our growing concern for the human impact on the environment, we can see the future in terms of loss, a sacrifice of beauty to necessity. If we observe Nature, we see changing, challenging conditions spurring elegant design. Like the Natural World to which we belong, by using less to achieve more, we can arrive at solutions that leave things better, more beautiful, than we find them.

Today, when we know we must curb our use of resources, today, when our buildings consume about 50% of U.S. energy, few can doubt that we must transform what we build and what we have built. We welcome the opportunity to play a part in solving the profound environmental questions confronting us, and with gratitude, we center our work on our most deeply held values, a reverence for life and the Natural World.
