EMBRACING OUR THREE DISCIPLINES
Merging artistry, craftsmanship and technology in everything we do . . .
Artistry brings beauty and a sense of place. Craftsmanship ensures longevity, durability and value. Technology drives products, processes and environmental sustainability. We embrace all three of these disciplines.
INNOVATIVE DESIGN USING STORYTELLING
Whether small and intimate . . . or large and complex . . . all our designs reflect a project’s distinct ‘sense of place’, the clients’ personal roots, passions and unique requirements . . . and the unmistakable story that unfolds there.
We design elegant spaces that you can be comfortable in. Whether having a formal cocktail party or just lounging around in your favorite pair of jeans, we want your home to be comfortable, personal and genuine.
PERIOD INSPIRED DESIGN AND DETAILS
Authentic historic architecture details and craftsmanship from the past . . .
From an elegant English summer home with carved limestone facades, an Italian villa adorned with plaster, stone and rich wood, or a mountain retreat converted into a rustic old-world hunting lodge, historical authenticity and craftsmanship is woven into all of our projects.
Restoring historic buildings and sites with great sensitivity . . .
We renovate and restore your historic buildings and sites with great sensitivity ensuring that all of the unique attributes of your special place are preserved for future generations. As an important part of our design and restoration process . . . we locate, restore and incorporate beautiful salvage materials to return your project to as close to original as possible.
The finest in antique furniture, lighting and collectibles . . .
Whether you have a taste for the eclectic or are seeking out specialty pieces to reflect the period architecture of your home, building or outdoor space . . . let us show you how we can provide superior selections for your special project.
Glorious gardens and other horticultural creations . . .
Horticulture is a lifelong love for us, and we would love to share our passion for the living plant world with you. We create gardens that are breathtaking. Plants and trees so amazing and diverse we never tire of sharing our knowledge of them.
Preserving your site’s unique sense of place . . .
Sensitivity in site design allows for beautiful locations to retain their charm, character and natural wonder, while still providing the innovative and functional solutions that the client needs and wants.
To us, conservation means more than the planned management of a natural resource.
. . .
Whether formal or whimsical, we love to create special places and secret hideaways.
This could be a winsome room tucked away at the end of a hallway, a secret garden in the back corner of your property, or a peaceful wine cellar to gather to enjoy the regions’ great wines.
Functional…emotionally stimulating . . . theatrical!
We believe that commercial spaces don’t have to be identical to what everyone else is doing.
Lifeless. Predictable. Unemotional.
Our design solutions allow a group or an individual to feel comfortable, welcome and entertained. Wonderful architecture with gorgeous materials. We create theater.
A lifetime dedicated to design and preservation . . .
“Kent approaches his design commissions as the great architects and designers of the last century. He begins by creating an overall vision for the project, refines the design, assembles a team of talented craftsmen, and then supervises the translation of this design on site until every last detail is exactly as he and the clients envision them.”
