Designing your new home must necessarily first take into account the existing factors of your site, considering the topography, exposure to sunlight and prevailing wind direction, drainage, soils, views and access.
Afterwards we will address more specific building aspects such as state and local codes and regulations, context within the surrounding community, current building technologies and systems, and sustainability. The design process will prioritize your program layout needs, your budget and schedule, and your personal taste and vision.
Adding to or renovating your existing home will be pursued with accurate representation of existing conditions and measurements, time sensitive planning for selective demolition to minimize disruption of the household, the choice of appropriate materials, including incorporation of sustainable materials whenever possible, while also keeping in mind the immediate and larger context of the rest of your home.
We will finally evaluate existing natural and artificial lighting conditions, and review existing building systems requiring update. The design process will prioritize your program layout needs, your budget and schedule, and your personal taste and vision.
