What services do you provide?


How would you describe your style?

"The firm is rooted in design principles rather than stylistic circumstance. From our design studios in Massachusetts, we design houses, barns, and outbuildings focusing on purpose, craft, and beauty."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"The Lake Point house is the first of three completed projects on a lake in New Hampshire. Its design and details update the classic north woods vernacular materials of stone and timber. While designed to maximise the 'lake experience', the house is carefully concealed from the shore. The lake-side of the house is a continuous wall of glass, capped by timbered eaves and anchored by monumental stone chimneys."
