With clients as far away as Malta and Manhattan, our work is by no means geographically-bound. In the same vein, it cannot be pegged as any one type or style of architecture. We thrive on unexpected variables and constraints, and as a result, have had the opportunity to work on a compelling array of projects ranging from modern timber cottages and urban infill homes to the reinvention of a cookie-cutter condo unit and the conversion of a distinctly Victorian home into something as modern as they are unique.

The one thing each of these projects share in common is our ardent desire to ensure the end product is thoughtfully-conceived, eminently functional, pleasing to the senses and sustainable for the long-term. Taken together, these four goals make for good design.
