As Designers we specialize in bridging the gap between livability and architectural splendor. Our spaces emphasize natural light, spatial flow, and connection to the landscape. We work closely with homeowners and architects to create building solutions and designs to meet the demands of budget, architectural period, and your family's unique style.


We are whole house builders. Our team is hands on through all stages of construction, insuring quality in all phases. Our knowledge and skills allow us to create finishes and high-end details with accuracy and style. We are a small and efficient crew that provides superior craftsmanship that you can feel.


We are well versed in the architectural styles found in Piedmont, Oakland, and Berkeley. From Craftsman to Tudor we can faithfully recreate period details in the spaces we build and restore. With a seamless blend between new and original spaces, we have what it takes to maintain the charm and character of your home.
