Our work hones clean lines, uses natural materials and simple shapes. We believe spaces should be filled with just enough light and soft shadows. We invite the natural world inside with large windows, shelter by using screens and always strive to ease transitions with refined minimalist construction. We are inspired by buildings and people from the all around the world and build with the Pacific Northwest in mind.
