Architecture is personal, the art of making one’s place for life, happiness and well being. Nick and Jes are a father and daughter design collaboration that emphasizes dialogue, discovery and results in an architecture reflective of each client. We are interested in creating memorable places that respond to the local context with a commitment to minimal demands on the environment and thoughtful use of nature and materials.

Prominent in our designs, which have been described as modern and belonging to their place, are the use of natural light, the flow of space and the dissolving of conventional distinctions between interior and exterior.

We believe buildings can awaken the senses, reconnecting us with nature. Our work celebrates modesty, beauty and meaning, all qualities that encourage sustainability. We give special attention to the relationship between the owner, builder and artisans in the design and construction process and we aspire to enrich our client’s lives and the larger world through it.
