We are creative problem solvers dedicated to a hands-on approach that brings a passion for craftsmanship into all phases of our projects. Our team assists our clients in diagnosing and remedying the myriad of issues that can plague new and historic buildings alike. Through traditional construction methods and new construction technologies, we find solutions to immediate and long term concerns of building maintenance and preservation.
We view the preservation and re-use of new and historic buildings as a critical practice in the sustainable stewardship of our environmental resources. Buildings represent an incredibly high embodied energy, that is the energy and resources expended to build them, as well as what would be required to replace them. As experts in the preservation of historic structures and the adaptive re-use of existing buildings, we are strong advocates for preservation as one of the most beneficial sustainable practices that can be offered in building construction.
As certified Passive House designers, our approach to architecture is sensitive to the history of existing structures while pragmatic about their present needs, to ensure that these buildings remain active contributors to our urban fabric. We approach each project, large or small, with the same level of care. Beginning with a detailed investigation of each project’s unique conditions, we integrate our client’s budgetary, programmatic and aesthetic goals to devise and implement a solution that is both attractive and pragmatic.
