    "Andrew created a design that excited our imaginations. Our challenge was to bridge diametrically opposed lifestyles and visions: urban professional and pop artist, conservative and quirky, stoic and colorful, timeless design and pop culture - a private woodland retreat to entertain a large contemporary crowd.”

    After seeing the slouch couch, our client approached us to a complete renovation of their home, in a bright, colorful, and sophisticated way. The Adams House is a luxury renovation for a couple with opposite visions, combining the colorful and eccentric with a reserved and formal attitude with precision and elegance. Each of the five bathrooms gained its own personality, with one becoming a steam room. Walls are strategically opened to give visual and physical connection to what was before a a very disconnected house.

    Andrew believes in the power of relationships. The success of every architectural project comes down to relationships. The relationship of one space to another, of one material to another, and most importantly, the relationships between people. Andrew is focused first on building a positive and creative foundation with clients. From there, we can do anything.
