IS Architecture’s architectural trademark is threefold. First is the manner in which we use materials and detail a project. Whether the project is a modern residence, a revival period residence or a Craftsman remodel, our consistent trademark is an attention to how materials are used and how they are joined together. By paying close attention to the manner in which a material is installed, an inexpensive material can assume an essence beyond its normal presence and an expensive material can be stunning. Second, our firm seeks to maximize the use of natural light where appropriate. Third, our firm is known for its ability to work with a wide variety of architectural styles. Often our projects are a blend of the best of current design thought with the ambiance of a historic residence.
