Cedar Bonnet Island Wildlife Refuge

Check it out if you want to go for a short walk with beautiful bay views and the sounds of happy shore birds.  Soon the bike path will be open so you can easily get there without having to drive your car.

The Amber Under Construction

Reflecting on our last 20 years in business on LBI reminds us of how fortunate we are to be a part of this small, vibrant community filled with talented builders, clients and neighbors, shop keepers, artists, makers, chefs, beach patrol squads, municipal crews, and so many others who contribute to this unique place we call home. 

This is our Amber design under construction. Always fun to do a house in our own neighborhood!  And speaking of the 20th anniversary of our firm on LBI, we have been working with this talented (and kind) crew for almost as long (Sharpe Construction). 

More fun projects ahead for 2018/2019! 



The culmination of ideas from the conference table to the drawing board, the computer to the hammer contributes to the process of designing a home.   Meetings, program and code analysis along with site visits get the process started. Pencil-to-paper sketching and our in-house 3D imaging lead to detailing and construction documentation.  Quite an exciting time to be a part of making spaces and places in this progressive digital age. On a beautiful slice of Long Beach Island, this one is well underway.

The Backyard

Thinking of the edges and in-between spaces. Connecting the inside to the outside, gracefully landscaped with the owner's vision of a peaceful oasis in the middle of this busy beach town.  


Weathered cedar is as good as it gets along the coast.  The best time to take photos is a couple of years later.  


A spectacular day on LBI today -bright sunshine, blue skies with a warm and perfectly salty breeze.  A great example of one of our clients' green thumbs making their "house" a "home".  Happy June!


In our product laden world, Pirch, a new store in SoHo, just opened and may be a fresh approach to keeping up with the latest technology in kitchen, bath, and laundry.  We haven't been, but let us know if you have! We'll give you a review if we visit.
