Authenticity is vital. Materials have a unique radiance, and inherent synergy with other materials. We believe that forming materials into buildings is in essence, a delicate art of reconstituting the meaning they retained in their natural state. The process begins with tracking their origin, the way in which they where formed, quarried, or milled. Assembling synergetic combinations of materials is like pairing wine with food, a process in which we seek to expose the sensuous qualities of the original materials, and deliver them in an entirely new form.
