Except on very rare occasions, we do the planning, architecture and construction for all our projects.
Design/build keeps the responsibility in one place. It's very direct - just SMC and the client, working as a team, fully responsible to one another.
The relationship between client and designer/builder is all about honesty, forthrightness, collaboration and expectations fulfilled.
Woodworking is an important part of our business. We value fine craft and we use environmentally appropriate materials worthy of our efforts.
We create buildings, landscapes, environments, and neighborhoods. Our goal is to understand the site and to weld our buildings seamlessly to the land.
We communicate what we learn in many ways: writing, speaking, teaching and consulting.
