Embrace the flow state from within the boundaries of intelligent frameworks. Respect predictability as a necessary ingredient for creative freedom.
Seek the big picture in the small stories, and the self in the grand scheme. Look inward to look outward, and vice versa. Every perspective matters, whether it’s singular or shared.
There is a time for connecting and collective thought, and a time for purposeful retreat. Both are powerful and productive, and should be respected and nurtured.
By building a natural duality into our values system, we hope to make space for opposing concepts to exist and flourish, creating a sense of harmony and flexibility that radiates well beyond our studio walls.
Respect your work by approaching it with thoughtful dedication, but never let diligence distract you from joy. Our best work comes when effort and elation make contact.
Bring compassion and care to your relationships with others — and with yourself. By listening to ourselves and what we need, we become empowered. By trusting and caring for each other, we create the support systems that keep each of us thriving.
The idea of the living landscape begins within us: in the emotional and psychological territory of the self. This is where memories live, and stories, and feelings, and wonder. Like all landscapes, this internal one is layered and complex, encompassing our deepest desires, our messy truths, our most vibrant visions and inspired dreams. It is through channeling this inner landscape to inform our lived realities that we can create beauty, express truth, and inhabit ourselves fully. And it is through shaping our external environments that we can invite peace, harmony, and reflection into our inner worlds.
Our designs are both expressions in themselves and invitations for new ways of being and feeling. By layering our living spaces with meaning and beauty, we can create a “natural habitat” that inspires profound feeling states — expansion, warmth, buoyancy, comfort. These feelings then radiate even farther outward — like ripples in water — to our families, our communities, our visions for the world.
