As a female architect/entrepreneur, I bring a different perspective to designing and building a home. It is a soulful and creative experience. I don’t just design houses, I’m a trained building scientist and a small firm practice, so i’m involved in every decision from the beginning to the end of the project. We build nests, we build community, we build gathering spaces and quiet retreats. We think about how your home can serve you and how you want to feel in your space. We spend 90% of our lives indoors, and a majority of that in our homes. They should bring us joy.
My specialty is energy efficient residential design for cold climates. I practice integrated design and look at everything from daylight planning, energy consumption, orientation, and function. Many homes are beautiful, but all homes should require less effort to operate and maintain. Our design philosophy is simple, attractive, and durable homes that use space efficiently.
