"The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere - in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion and in ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming. Some of our most wonderful memories are of beautiful places where we felt immediately at home. We feel most alive in the presence of the Beautiful for it meets the needs of our soul. . . Without any of the usual calculation, we can slip into the seamless embrace of water; something ancient within us already trusts that this embrace will hold us." from BEAUTY: THE INVISIBLE EMBRACE, author John O'Donohue
The projects presented in this website are the result of a passion for beauty. Beauty occurs with the blending of rhythm, colour, pattern, and texture, as well as the balance between tranquility and excitement. Years of design theory, experimentation, and passion have resulted in what the viewer sees on this website. And it is our firm belief that beauty can be achieved at any price range. . .
The architect can provide any "style" in a set of rules, forms, lines and details that a viewer can then easily identify as modern, Georgian, French, etc.
