From watercolor to completion… For this Palm Beach estate, we did a comprehensive renovation and restoration with additions that included a new boat house and a beach house, which is connected to the main property by a tunnel under the road. The sum total of the house is over 60,000 sq ft.

Creative teamwork and collaboration produced a surprising mix of fresh materials and architectural details that breathed new life into the conventional apartment. The four-bedroom apartment was gut-renovated, resulting in a new master bedroom, new his and her master baths and closets, new detailing and materials for the public rooms, a new kitchen and a breakfast room.

A new house we designed in Washington, Connecticut. Many have asked to see photos of the interior, which we’ve included here. The rooms have far-reaching views that stretch across the landscape.

Experimentation with bare cypress wood siding. So far, so good. #preservation #tropics #oldflorida #cypress
Great old times with our client, the lovely and vivacious Liv Tyler in Greenwich Village! #funinthemorgan #livtyler #greenwichvillage #preservation #architecturaldigest
As many start heading to the country for the weekend, it's also nice to have a place in the city you can enjoy every day of the week. We combined three units on the 11th floor of this Upper West Side building. We did a gut renovation - with all new exterior windows and doors and a new full HVAC system throughout - to create a beautiful 6 bedroom home overlooking Central Park.

A watercolor from our proposed urban design for Marion Square in Charleston, South Carolina. The goal was to provide a sense of arrival into the city by enclosing the defining the square and creating vistas.

Scenes from a creative restoration we did for a Spanish Colonial Revival house in Palm Beach, Florida. It was one of John Volk’s early works, built in 1928.

A new house we designed in Washington, Connecticut. The ruggedness of the site led us to look at Scottish precedent in establishing the character of the design.
