Shelter designs custom-built new homes and renovations of existing dwellings — including historic properties.
Regardless of a structure’s age, size or location, one aspect of our design is constant: We place the homeowners’ needs and sensibilities front and center.
We embrace an approach called empathetic design. That means we listen, intently, to the homeowners throughout the process. Our goal is to design living spaces that reflect how people wish to use, move through, and feel within their most precious and personal surroundings.
As a result, we’ve built up an eclectic residential portfolio. Rather than showcase a particular “Shelter” style, these projects represent the broad mix of our clients’ individual preferences and personalities.
