What we do.
"Home is anywhere you feel comfortable."
Kendall uncovered his design philosophy 18,000 feet above sea level and 3,000 miles from home, digging himself into a snow pit on Mt. Denali. Even in challenging subzero temperatures, he was able to find a sense of home.
We believe the feeling of "home" comes from functional design, but community is key. Getting to know the client is as important to our process as our longtime relationships with local artists, fabricators, vendors and trusted contractors.
