Our work is known for its crisp lines and formal elegance in the classic modernist tradition. We focus on working with clients interested in exploring unique sites and their connection to nature and the outside. Concentrating on work in California and Hawaii, we involve ourselves in projects determined less by size and scope, but more by the client’s enthusiasm and level of commitment.
Architecture Team Members, 2000 to present: Luigi Silverman, Jason Torres, Steven Ohlhaber, Norberto Melendez, Seth Pare-Mayer, Chris Talbott, Mary Barensfeld, Ricardo Jnani Gonzalez, Ryan Leidner.
