Working with clients to create a peaceful escape.

Vacation homes often present their own unique challenges.  Fitting family, friends and friends of friends into a mountain getaway or beachfront retreat requires creative architecture. Finding a place to store wetsuits, surfboards, muddy boots and snowboards is just as important as where everyone will sleep. But, of course, capturing the best views from the most advantageous points is always at the top of the priority list. When designing these homes-away-from-home, we work closely with clients to consider all the adventures they may undertake as they vacation. That way we can recommend the most appropriate materials and finishes to make the space both functional and serene.
