We create livable modern spaces for design enthusiasts, independent thinkers and those that respect the earth. Sustainable living begins with sustainable design, but not all sustainable designs incorporate modern design. We are committed to providing both for our clients.


We had the opportunity to experiment with our own home a decade ago with natural lighting, shading, building orientation, ventilation, low V.O.C. materials, energy efficiency and renewable resources. We take each project as green as the client will allow and find the best success in these close relationships between architect, client and contractor. Efficient framing techniques, searching together for salvaged materials, high performing appliances, local materials, constant research and dialog are all part of these relationships.


Pamela Magnus is a Certified Green Building Professional through Build It Green. She also holds a LEED Green Associate credential. The firm continues to pursue pertinent training as members of the U.S. Green Building Council, Build It Green and the American Institute of Architects.

Our mission is to create designs that respect the earth in addition to the mind, body and soul. Green design in itself is not necessarily good design. Our intent is to provide well-designed buildings that are both aesthetically pleasing and perform well.
