We are a creative studio of architects and designers with a passion to improve the built environment. We strive to create spaces that are not only beautiful but also livable. Spaces that connect us to one another, exemplify our clients’ character and ideals, and are respectful of surroundings and mindful of resources. Our design process consistently delivers sophisticated, gracious places for people to call home.
A belief that things must change. To use fewer resources. To produce fewer toxins. To nourish the human spirit and foster a humane world. To stare these challenges straight in the eye and question the status quo. We are the tools to effect this change. We make things better by designing beautiful environments that save energy, reduce pollution, and inspire those who inhabit them.
A kitchen remodel in Edina because we were really creating the clients’ dream that has been 10 years in the making, and it all started with a conversation on a 100-mile bike ride. The kitchen incorporates things we don’t always get to include in a project, sets the stage for entertaining, and includes an indoor wood-fire pizza oven.
