All of our projects are designed from the ground up with energy-efficiency, comfort and durability as guiding principles. Our homes typically use the sun to provide 50% or more of their winter heating requirements. Many also generate most or all of their own electricity, heat their own hot water and catch enough rainwater for domestic water use.
Our homes incorporate passive solar design elements to use the winter sun for heating and summer nights for cooling . We integrate plentiful daylighting and proven energy-efficient "building science" construction methodologies to ensure our homes are durable, resource-efficient, comfortable and healthy to live in.
We design innovative custom homes for urban, residential and off-grid locations. Each location offers different considerations which are carefully evaluated and integrated into the design of our homes.
Designing and building a home can be exhilarating, complicated and rewarding. We value our client's decision to have us be part of their team, respect their investment and contributions to the design, and always remember we are doing what we love doing and have fun in the process.
