Dwight McNeill, AIA

Principal and Lead Architect
“We create homes for the way our clients want to live.  The high level of detail we add, both inside and out, transforms mere houses into inspiring and beautiful places to live.” 


Jim Baker

Principal and President
“What sets us apart is the level of personal service and guidance provided during a complex decision-making process from concept through construction, including material choice and finishes, to landscaper and contractor selection. Each decision is intimately connected to the clients’ entire vision.”
