About Us


Projects featured here are representative of a broad range of collaborative work which include The Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center - a Tahoe Forest Hospital signature upgrade, The Montgomery Residence - a large lot Single Family private residential project, The Tahoe Vista Recreation Area - an award winning beach access park project and the historic McGuinn and Titus Homes complex in Downtown Truckee.  Not only do each of these vary in uses but also in scale, users and context making each very interesting in their own right.
