Carefully crafting beautiful spaces for people and the planet.
Our mission is to design timeless architecture that improves the lives of our neighbors, makes the people in our communities smile, and responds to the unique qualities of each site. We work in an inclusive manner that engages people in the design process and leads to creative solutions for each project while adhering to our five primary design principles:
We approach each project with a focus on materiality. All of our projects aim to be well crafted with a close attention to details. Authenticity is what we look for, celebrating each material’s strengths, uniqueness, and beauty.
The most sustainable building is a beautiful building that is taken care of over time. Each project should have elements that delight and inspire, while overall beautiful projects have refined proportion, scale and composition. We aim to incorporate all of these elements in a timeless design that draws on our other design principles.
Our buildings are calibrated for high-performance - reducing the use of energy, water, & resources needed to make them function. We create spaces with strong connections to the outdoors & surrounding landscape in order have a positive impact on the environment with interiors that maximize comfort, views, & natural light.
As we work through our design process we look for ways to simplify our projects to their necessities. This “less is more” approach leads to efficient uses of space and intuitive designs that maximizes the user experience. A minimalist design allows moments of delight, a great view to the exterior or the beauty of natural wood, to really shine.
Each of our clients is unique and we strive to respond their specific needs, lifestyle, and values. We have an individual approach that is based on collaboration with our clients. Propel values Design Generosity - finding ways to use our skills to give back to our community through volunteering and probono services.
