Balance means integrated design

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

"Although our architecture has a modern sensibility, our "style" is determined by an integrated design concept, with every detail considered and merged into a final whole. A carefully designed structure becomes part of the landscape, enhancing rather than encroaching on the surroundings. So we study the site, the way the sun moves across the sky, and the views. The site determines the materials used too, from granite to timbers. Even the setting influences the look and feel, as we consider how a house will interact with a surrounding neighborhood, a hilly terrain or a sandy shoreline. Our structures respond appropriately to the climate and are built to maximize panoramic vistas and natural lighting. The style dominates the interior too, as we blur the distinctions between indoors and out, and repeat motifs and materials within a house for consistency and flow."
