Lighting Choices 

We focus on developing a balanced lighting scheme using natural and artificial light. An open floor plan works well with windows on multiple exterior walls.

On the back of a napkin...
Some of our best projects have, in fact, started as a sketch on a napkin.  They were usually the result of a spontaneous collaboration between us and a potential (turned actual) client. If there is something you want to do with your home or doesn't hurt to talk to us.  Napkin sketches over coffee are free.  :)
