While feeling a bit vain in so doing, we present our work to you here. Combined, Momo and Fitz have literally decades of design work in place and together we look forward to serving our future clients with the same vim, vigor, and excitement with which we produced the work we here display. We love residential, hospitality and commercial design (What else is left?) and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with past, present and future clients on the projects of their dreams, so as to make you all proud and turn all of you into lasting friends. Enjoy the images of our previous endeavors and please, continue to dream about the ways in which design can benefit your lives and your lifestyles!
Here is a grouping of homes we created for some of our great friends and clients. The design of a home is an extremely personal endeavor and we respect and greatly appreciate the families who have let us enter their lives in so intimate a process.
We believe these works to be great examples of a sustainable practice - the re-use and reclamation of a treasured structure, home or space. We take this sort of design responsibility to heart and thoroughly enjoy the education inherent in the restoration of a living environment.
Brought in by invitation to the delightful realm of preserving the Colorado western ranching tradition, these works have proven to be some of our most satisfying. The ranchers benefit, the region benefits, and some lucky people are allowed to enjoy one of the west's great ways of life.
Less personal a process perhaps than that of single-family design, these works are extremely important none-the-less; and complex as well. We learn from each of our developer-lead residential projects and enjoy the results most when they aid in the revitalization of under-utilized and under-valued neighborhoods and cities.
Often associated with transit projects and typically involving complex relationship between multi-family residential, community use, and urban landscapes, these projects are intense and attractive expressions of modern day life. While many of the projects shown are un-built, the oeuvre represents years of cultural and contextual study.
Made up of work produced essentially for the "public good", institutional work brings with it rewards of public notice and sometimes public acclaim. These projects span many years but are, hopefully, to be seen as timeless, effective, and still, to this day, producing benefits beyond those enjoyed by only a few.
To be hospitable, through the design and construction of resort hotels, brings both challenges and rewards. Again these benefit more than just a few, but they are to be enjoyed in the moment - at the point at which they are being occupied. The world of hospitality is complex, sexy, subjective, changing and challenging.
Though this category presents relatively few possibilities given today's economy, the notion of the creation of speculative space still intrigues us. One designs for the client's client here and one rarely ever gets to meet the end user. Yet there is, as with institutional work, the ever-present sense that one is profoundly affecting the larger world. We do not often hear from those whose lives are held within them directly, but the design which is fostered upon the larger context always has a sense of the relatively permanent and the sometimes omnipotent.
