Description
Formed in 2002 by principals Daniel Lajoie and Michelle Jeresek, our goal is to create authentic, responsible, and sustainable architecture. We seek new solutions in a forum that responds directly to the design at hand, without preconceptions, by responding carefully to the site, our region, our culture, and our client’s needs. Our focus is to make “special places” for people - places that create a personal connection for them. Consideration for the overall body, mind, and spirit is paramount to us. “Place” can enhance this experience significantly. A successful environment can promote emotional, spiritual, and physical health. And because the home is a place of retreat, rejuvenation and personal comfort, it is here in particular that we can begin to realize our full potential. We all have differing experiences and the places that allow each of us to experience these qualities differ from person to person. We not only honor this but wish to truly understand these differences with our clients within a safe and collaborative environment.
