Site Detailing

we are homeowners.

We design everything from new homes, additions and renovations to single bathrooms, kitchens, and basement build-outs. Residential projects draw on perspectives we have gained as homeowners, gardeners, cooks, cleaners, hosts and hostesses, and family members.


we are entrepreneurs.

We work with with entrepreneurs, business owners, and developers to create projects that include restaurants, breweries, boutique hotels, athletic facilities, and museums. Commercial projects call on skills we have learned as entrepreneurs, consumers, entertainers, and engaged citizens.


Our fees are competitive within our industry with pricing ranging from 8-12% of construction costs. Although this is a good base point to consider for architectural fees, we always provide a fee estimate before beginning a project. This estimate is determined after meeting with you at your project site, reviewing your project goals, and discussing any of your issues and concerns regarding the project.
