Great Rooms Illuminate The Beauty Of The World.

They Connect Us To The Land, To The Changes Of The Seasons.

To Our Rituals, And To Our Own Aspirations To Live A Meaningful Life.

The Actions Of Ordinary Living . . .

The form of a house should have great sympathy for the weather of the land.

A house should make possible a way of seeing your own life, as if through a lens.

To make and share food in a room that does not feel like a “kitchen” or a “dining room.”

Great room design does not go into or out of style, it remains a timeless expression of a way of living that is unique to each setting and to each individual. Beauty in building design is the highest principle of sustainability. We are nurtured and transformed by beauty: it wakes us up and inspires us to leave the world better than we found it. I have been designing buildings for 34 years and believe that all great design is born out of this deep-rooted ethic of stewardship.
