We placed the new family room next to an existing office and linked these two spaces to the main house via the new entry that is perceived as an outdoor room (gesturing to the memory that the...

The land is an evergreen forest made up mainly of Ponderosa Pine trees. The house required significant upgrades to meet code, particularly as it relates to fire resistance. The owner also desired to improve in the interior layout by adding a new kitchen,...

Even though the home is essentially one building, we broke up the massing to give the appearance of several structures organized around a central courtyard. Hence, the primary rooms all have distinct...

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_column_text]We were commissioned to design this home for another breathtaking property in the red rock area of southwest Utah. As with the first house we designed for this region, these clients requested a design founded on the Spanish Pueblo Revival vernacular – replete with divided light windows and doors, wood columns and vigas, and distinct battered wall massings anchored within the landscape. Given the location of this particular site, our clients very much desired capturing the stunning views of the...

The chapel takes the form of a circle, given that it is a universal theme of unity found throughout most cultures of the world. The space, like a theatrical “black box”, can be ornamented with various icons and images that the family of the deceased deems appropriate. The seven-foot deep...

It was our intent that the architecture manifest a strong link to its unique site while concurrently providing an individual identity for the bank. The building explains the historical significance and railyard setting in a way that is not overtly representational but is subtly referred to through strong geometric form and...
