Building Culture


SCROLL DOWN

Building Culture


We offer a real response to the problems of mass-produced housing: solid brick homes that nourish the human soul with beauty, authenticity, and simplicity.


Blending the best of old and new, we carefully design every detail, consider every selection, and continually experiment with better ways to build.  We believe houses can be more than the chemically laden, machine-produced shelters churned out by the construction-industrial complex.  They can be homes—places we love, care for and feel intimately connected to.  They can enrich our lives and communities, and contribute to a cultural heritage worth passing down.   

We are fighting for a New Renaissance in building and architecture—where a commitment to beauty, craftsmanship and enduring materials enriches our lives and contributes to human flourishing.

THE BEND

Humans are meant to live in community, and this pocket neighborhood sets the stage.  Four structural masonry and two traditionally framed homes surround a shared open courtyard, while a more private, intimate gathering space is nestled in the rear.  With a fire pit, pergola and tables, dedicated parking and storage units, The Bend balances privacy and community with grace.      

THE EDISON

This 1700 sq ft, 3 bed and a loft, 2.5 bath cottage is playful yet sophisticated.  The traditional elements paired with modern touches create a unique yet recognizable house.  A good example of how buildings can have infinite variations and character while also conforming to the archetypes that we recognize, find comfort in, and love. 

THE FRANKLIN

This 2100 sq/ft structural masonry home with foot-thick walls is sculpted from over 60,000 brick.  From a spiral staircase, loft space, bunkroom, super efficient wood burning stove, cable lighting and timber framed porches, this home is full of old-world charm and modern touches.  And with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large kitchen and full dining, it comes with everything you need for hosting and entertaining.
