Our firm is distinguished by the way in which our architects carefully restore existing historic architectural fabric and integrate new work into that fabric. This philosophy is made apparent in our residential projects, and in our national award-winning restoration of commercial buildings. We further extend this philosophy beyond individual structures into comprehensive project planning for entire neighborhoods and communities.
Our architects are experienced and qualified in the art and science of the preservation and rehabilitation of historic structures. We integrate the knowledge gained through our experience with historic structures and construction practices into our new work - building better buildings based upon a comprehensive understanding of the qualities of buildings of the past.
We are committed in our work towards the revitalization of urban neighborhoods and traditional downtowns in our effort to conserve human and material resources, and to promote sustainability of the environment. In pursuit of that commitment, we believe that good architecture and existing community structure should be respected, preserved, and incorporated as essential parts of new design solutions.
Paramount in all our work, we consider our clients - be they homeowners, tenants, small-business owners, not-for-profit entities, or community development organizations - to be inseparable and integral part of the planning, design, and execution of projects. We maintain an intimate and active communication with our clients from project conception to completion - addressing their particular objectives and constraints, while providing them with new insight into the value of well-considered and well-executed design solutions.
