Building or renovating a home is a very personal experience.

Excerpts from our "Ask the Expert" segment with Shelley Irwin on December 17:

Q: How closely do you work with the families during a home renovation or new design?

A: Building or renovating a home is a very personal experience. We work to discover what’s mportant to them. We ask a series of questions to fully understand their needs. We want to know what each room is used for and at what time of day. From the answers we develop a few options with various rooms and layouts. We present those options in the form of physical models on a small scale. Once we settle on a design we develop that model on the computer, both in 2D and 3D, it’s important for people to see what their house is going to look like when we’re done.

A building should compliment its site and landscape.

Excerpts from our "Ask the Expert" segment with Shelley Irwin on December 17:

Q: Do you do landscape design?

A: We don’t choose actual plants but rather focus on the buildings connection to landscape. We are always thinking about the ground plane and how that relates to interior spaces and how the building interacts with the landscape. Once complete it should feel simple and like it was meant to be there.

Q: Let's talk about sustainability.

A: Sustainability is a foundation of our practice. Everything we do has sustainability in mind ranging from energy efficiency to choices about materials and incorporating sustainable systems. We have a strong partner in Green Home Institute who helps with material, research and system options.
