The purpose of architecture is to solve problems by creating design solutions. We just decided to take it a few steps further. Modern, precise and individualized design delivered turnkey in half the time and half the cost.
Whether you’re a newlywed couple dreaming of your first home, a school district with a growing student population or a healthcare administrator looking to expand your facility, our studio works with each client to bring their personalized vision to life.
Our team of specialists apply design thinking to project delivery, providing our clients an alternative approach to traditional site-built construction without sacrificing quality or design.
The project that launched our modular studio was a vacation home in Maine. A client came to us with an idea and two requests: that we design their family a unique retreat and that we do so in a method that was both simple and affordable. We’re not the kind to shy away from a challenge, so our team rolled up their sleeves and got to work.
3 months later, our client was hosting Thanksgiving in their new modular dwelling.
about the design
Finding inspiration from nearby ports, we relied on shipping containers to create this distinctive design. Our team was determined to find a solution that minimized impact on site while taking advantage of privacy and views. The purpose of this particular design, with its large windows and doors and open floor plan, is to remove the barrier between outdoor and indoor living. Furthermore, orientation maximizes solar heating during winter months and cross-ventilation throughout summertime. The main house connects to three separate containers, or casitas, by a raised walkway which serve as private quarters for guests.
