Family Homes

Before we begin designing your family’s home, we spend time listening to the people who will live there. A good house should reflect the patterns of your life now as well as support your vision for how you want to grow.

The best house also looks like it belongs on its site and within its community. We design many houses every year, but each one is intended to be unique.

Estate Homes

When we are asked to design a significant house on a special property, we listen to the land. A beautiful estate house responds not only to an owner’s requirements but should also seem at one with its site.

Once an estate design really starts to sing inside and out, we move on to finesse the details and fine materials that will truly accommodate lives well-lived.

Renovating an older home takes a special set of skills, ones that we have honed over our twenty-eight year history. We have worked on hundreds of old homes, and we take the time to understand how your home is put together, how it works and how it doesn’t.

Our design response is intended to fit in with your house and your neighborhood as well as in your budget. At the end you get to stay right where you are, only you’re in a better mood.

Outdoor Rooms and Structures

In the Washington D.C. area, much of what you pay for in a home is its location. Taking advantage of the whole lot, integrating the inside with “outside rooms” and making a place live large is an essential element in residential architecture.

Bringing together light with shade, landscape with hardscape and playfulness with serenity has a lot to do with making a place memorable.
