Our design principles

Although every project is unique, all our designs are guided by our desire to deliver high quality environments that use available resources responsibly for the benefit of future generations. We believe that good quality design develops through observation and the active process of learning by doing. The maker culture, with its focus on technology and open-source sharing of ideas, greatly inspires our design values. We take pleasure in the handmade, the use of local, natural materials and the enjoyment of simple things. We believe that real luxury derives from the ability to live in harmony with one's environment. The inspiration for our work is rooted in our knowledge that we are an integral part of the natural world. Our ultimate goal is to make sustainable and low impact living accessible to all.
