We promote healthy building materials and environment, commit to source building materials responsibly, to understand the site and natural patterns, to promote local and low tech building systems, to utilize protective and regenerative methods, to encourage fossil-free energy alternatives.
We recognize that we are so much more than the commercial work we do and that our fate is intimately linked to the health and well-being of all.
We believe in the common good, responsible environmental stewardship, and social justice.
We value principles of diversity, equity and collaboration, and look forward to seeing what good we can do in the world together!
"Many Hands Build."

We have expertise in building systems and technologies that promote the construction of very efficient buildings.
We promote materials and finishes that are non-toxic and responsibly-sourced.
Healthy buildings require moving away from combustible gasses within the building envelope. We promote fossil fuel-free 100% clean electric energy.
As Architects, our main function is to interpret the needs, dreams and desires of our clients into clearly built form. Therefore, we work closely with each client in true collaboration, honing the plans and elevations until we have achieved the desired program and form. You bring the inspiration, and we'll bring spatial functionality, code compliance and a way to deal with gravity.
Permaculture is a creative design process based on whole-systems thinking informed by nature. By observing nature's cues, we build better, with sensitivity to place and with attention to natural patterns over time.
"Permaculture is an ecologically sound approach to providing for our needs, including our food, shelter and social structures. Is is based on co-operating with nature and caring for the Earth and its people." Patrick Whitefield

"Few people realize how complicated it is to build - that is until they find themselves lost in the maze of design options, building codes, zoning laws, contractors, and so on. No two building projects are exactly alike, so there is no single, clear-cut path to follow."
Do What You Can, Right Where You Are, With Everything You've Got!
Commit to providing habitat, water, food-bearing plants for birds and other wild animals and a sustainable maintenance plan to begin your own Certified Wildlife Habitat and support local wildlife!
When I moved here five years ago, the grounds were little more than dirt pathways up a dirt hill between two houses. My early dream was to turn it into a food forest so that it could support and sustain the myriad wildlife in the hillside area: skunks, raccoons, squirrels, all the birds, even the coyotes.
Once planter walls were built, we planted olive, fig, avocado, peach, pear, sweet lime, mango, mulberry, lemon.... and more!
Part of our mission is to make Windsor House a refuge for the Monarch Butterfly whose numbers are dwindling due to habitat loss.
We are actively seeking to connect with others in the Silver Lake (Los Angeles) area who are interested in establishing milkweed patches so that we can support the Monarch Butterfly year-round! We share milkweed seeds for free!
Every component of the built world is connected to every other part; we do not design or live in a vacuum. Every thing we do matters and each one of us is important. This world is a dream. Let's dream big and beautiful!
