Our priority is to preserve the natural features of a build site. Interventions for site preparation, access, or utilities are carefully planned to have the least amount of impact. “No Trace” landscape methods restore disturbed areas as naturally and completely as possible.


All aspects of a building’s design and construction are understood and managed with an awareness of how the parts fit and function together, eliminating issues that can arise when trades are jobbed out. Long-term thinking- about how a structure will be used and the maintenance it will require down the road – informs our designs so that future repairs are easier.


Minimalism means letting crafts and materials speak for themselves. Rather than eliminating details, our approach to minimalism is to highlight the beauty of natural materials through technique.
