Team

Our studio is located on the top floor of an historic brick warehouse, at the top of Portland’s Old Port. We have brought as much of the natural Maine landscape into our workspace as possible, from beach rocks within translucent walls, to a rippling galvanized steel ribbon tack space covered in our sketches. As you pause at the entry we bet you won’t be able to resist gliding your hand across the concrete wave.

We move easily between hand sketching and digital production. We create 3D printed models, animated walkthroughs, and gorgeous renderings whenever it helps visualize your design better. We work commonly with clients from across the country using our secure extranet and web meeting software which allows full immersion in your building from any web browser.
