We begin without preconceived ideas
“I believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society. My buildings try to answer the questions that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can.”
Peter Zumthor, 2009 Pritzker Prize Laureate
We begin every project without any preconceived ideas of the final design outcome. Through evaluation of the program requirements, the design unfolds informing the layout in terms of space, materials, and illumination (both natural and artificial). We integrate the client’s hopes, dreams, and desires into a unified whole, conceived around the specifics of their needs, and informed by the context of the site. Our approach is sensitive to the environment around us—topography, sun movement, views, flora, existing buildings—all are considered in order to create a unique and special place. The expression of these considerations will form an appropriate architectural design.
We look at every possibility to create an architecture that is appropriate from the most grand scale to the smallest detail. Through subtle use of light and material we strive for spatial solutions that delight – creating something extraordinary in the process.
