MODERN ARCHITECTURE FOR JOYFUL LIVING

Our award-winning work is grounded in our conversations with you.

We love architecture that is honest and direct, but also warm and extremely comfortable. It’s about freedom, flexibility, and defining your own expectations—designing the now, rather than a replica of the past. Modern architecture is more a philosophy than a style.

Let us transform your needs and ideals into empathic, human-scaled spaces that encourage a joyful approach to intentional living.

Remember summer? We’re missing these warm summer breezes in Cape Ann on this cold winter day… In case y’all haven’t checked out our website in a while, at long last we’ve added this recent waterfront house, with gorgeous photos by Nat Rea. Many of the most complex details inside and out were fabricated by the homeowners including the sculptor Kim Radochia, @kim_radochia_studios .

Hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving long weekend. We have so much to be thankful for: the best clients (sorry but it’s true), the best builders / craftsmen, the best interior design collaborators, the best photographers… Sandra was fortunate to have been with Tony Luong for his photo shoot of this Cambridge live / work house. You can see the full feature in Dwell’s November / December issue, focused on “Fearless American Homes”.
