Solid Masonry Fireplaces
European Timber Framing
Chapels & Pavilions
We seek to build structures that endure generation after generation. Creating such structures requires three elements: hardy and durable materials, skillful construction methods, and artful design and detail.
Roughly speaking, those serve as our starting points when considering how to build well. Structural masonry and timber framing address the two needs of using durable materials and creating beautiful buildings worth preserving. Regarding design and building styles, we view architecture as an ongoing conversation. While it is easy to look back into the past and copy previous successful styles, it amounts to little more than reiterating what a previous speaker said. Far better to attentively listen to those who went before us and listen to their account, and then step forward and add your bit to the discourse. Our designs and details are informed historically, but breathe new life into the conversation of architecture.
Solid materials, productive craftsmanship, robust art.
