“I follow an idea. The idea that architecture can be sourced from the simple, everyday experience of life is essential to my mode of design. I believe the resultant architecture as derived from these experiences can be inspiring to all people in a daily, practical way. I believe people deserve good space and good buildings derived from good ideas.”
We believe that through observation, the world reveals itself as an inspirational primer for design and an unwritten instruction manual for living. In a region where the terms rural and urban are almost interchangeable, modus champions architecture as a means of navigating the threshold between the natural and manmade world. We have chosen to embrace simple, low-tech design solutions to improve the quality of life for our clients and community.
