We formally established our studio in 1985. Our different training and work experiences became our strength as we continue to share a commitment to an open exchange of ideas. It yields a fresh perspective and inventive yet practical projects. Though our profession has changed over the years, our goals to be cost-effective, to use space efficiently, incorporate natural materials and respect the environment remain the cornerstones of our practice. As husband and wife, we have a real interest in families and neighborhoods. Our children brought us into the schools which enriched not only our practice but our lives. Adventurous travel to explore cities and cultures is a shared passion. We continue to learn, to build on our knowledge and stay flexible within a changing world.
