Founded on the simple thought that beauty matters, our firm strives to thoughtfully create living spaces that are as beautiful and unique as the people who will occupy them. Ever mindful of traditional building elements, the design team collectively views both modernism and classicism as a part of the broader language of architecture, while working to cultivate a fresh approach to design. Distinctive homes created by the fifteen-member firm can be found throughout the country, including in North Carolina, New York, California, Illinois, Colorado, Maryland, Virginia, Vermont, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, and South Carolina. Our work has been featured in numerous publications including Veranda, Traditional Home, Luxe Interiors + Design, Garden & Gun, House Beautiful, Southern Living, and Milieu. We were honored to receive the Philip Trammell Shutze Award for Residential Architecture, the Veranda/ADAC award for architecture firm of the year, and the Southern Living Home of the Year award. Our first book, Finding Home, was published by Rizzoli in September of 2021.
