playful approach



Aren’t you a little old for play-time?
We believe Architecture is a sensitive and optimistic response to its context. We begin every project with play in an effort to add to the optimism. It remains our ambitious responsibility that all projects are not only innovative but flourish with guileless imagination.

TL;DR we have fun.


You sound like goof-offs. Why should we rely on you?
We’ve dedicated our entire lives to this profession. We work rigorously and rapidly. This isn’t just a full-time job.

TL;DR we seriously love our profession.


Alright, who do you like to work with?
We work in a friendly, informal way. We like to collaborate with venturesome individuals, partners, and families that take creative chances on innovative design. The best projects emerge from a collective effort. Our clients and communities benefit from being actively involved in the design process from the beginning. Why should we have all the fun?

TL;DR we collaborate with forward-thinkers.




rigorous process



Okay, your approach sounds pretty cool, but I’ve never built anything before. What is the process like? 
The design process is broken down into phases; we refer to them as “Acts.” Like every great play, the design process reaches a climax and eventually resolves in an often unexpected solution. You can be as involved in this story however you wish, or you can sit back and watch the story unfold.

clever outcomes



Let’s get down to brass tacks. What services do you offer?
We know it can be difficult to envision your new space. We help imagine and build memorable spaces to inspire you, your family, and future generation.

We specialize in design and small-scale residential and commercial architecture:

residential__new construction, remodels/additions, ADUs

commercial__workplaces, restaurants, retail, pop-ups

design__wayfinding, art direction, illustration, installations

TL;DR we are nimble.


Great, but you sound expensive. How much do you charge?
It depends on the complexity of the project. We do our best to make our design fees accessible to anybody.

TL;DR everyone deserves high-level design.
