A Message From Jeffrey
When we started working on these tiny houses we began by thinking of living a more edited life and in simple ways and times. As that line of thinking led to making architectural choices, we also found that simple lines were the most powerful and elegant. We looked at forms of simple outdoor structures- and found tents and teepees and sheds. We found materials that were natural seemed to fit in best with what we were creating- and indeed in the environments that these structures might populate.
What emerged from all the creative dust and investigations and sketches were 5 simple houses all derived or inspired from these things- nature, history and simplicity. I am very proud of our team and these tiny pieces of architecture, but more pleased to be able to use our creative gifts and talents to create a handful of places that are within reach of a much broader spectrum of people than we normally would be able to serve. As always, our goals are to elevate their life experience- and bring serenity to the enjoyment of living.
The firm is a close knit group of design professionals with a passion for making people’s lives better through the places we design. We work closely with our clientele always striving to understand their lives and create places of lasting beauty and permanence.
Our focus is to merge architecture and structure with interiors that create the most thoughtful and cohesive experiences. We collaborate with talented artisans and interior designers from across the country, always having fun in the process.
