What We Do

Over the last twenty-five years we have reimagined more than a hundred homes, designing dozens of kitchens, living, dining and family rooms, mudrooms, master suites, bedrooms and bathrooms. Sometimes we work within the shell of an existing house, sometimes we add on, usually we do both.   But the most important thing we do is assure that the new construction is integrated with the old, and that the entire house functions as a cohesive whole.

We specialize in renovations and additions that protect and extend the integrity of a grand old house. We restore the dignity to a home that has been confused by earlier, insensitive remodeling. We find the simple elegance in a small house and help it grow gracefully to a size that is appropriate for the site it occupies and the family that lives there.

We turn the house you have into the home you want.
