Founded in 1996 in Los Gatos, CA, the firm offers services in architecture, interior design, planning, and consulting. The firm takes projects of all sizes and focuses primarily in residential new construction and remodeling. Clients of this small practice receive a high degree of individual attention from the firm's principal. Green building and sustainable architecture has been a core practice of the firm's principal for nearly 3 decades. Her very first project in 1980 was a passive solar house in Seattle, Washington.
Every project benefits from this philosophy which involves using low-toxic and recycled materials, maximizing energy efficiency, and minimizing the use of old growth timber. The buildings are bioclimatic, meaning they are oriented to take advantage of the topography of the site, natural light, natural ventilation, and best use of the views, all while avoiding severe solar conditions. The goal is housing that directly benefits individuals and families, the community, and the environment.
