We have left only quiet footprints in the mountains:
View from Norton Creek Estates
Our architectural work is at one with nature, balancing minimal disturbances to the natural site, with an emphasis on sustainable landscape design through innovative storm water detention and absorption techniques. The structures emphasize privacy rather than visibility, symbiosis with site rather than forced impact, and respect of natural materials and of passive design in a vernacular of local culture. We mold the constituent facts and principles of critical regionalism design into building forms that are configured so that our users may live, play, eat, worship, and work in a nurturing and low-stress man-made environment. While being reliable and highly livable, and while emphasizing the aesthetics, our buildings consume less energy to operate.
Our work celebrates and protects the unique differences of the mountain ecosystems, cultural and social needs, tradition and economy. We have integrated active and passive solar designs, evolved impacting aspects of sustainable design and developed new methodologies of materials in a regional framework.
