This is a company which strives to design beautifully detailed, cohesive, practical, functional homes, homesteads, and interiors with a sensitivity to environment and ecology. The structures and spaces should be made intuitive and supportive of the homeowner, reflective of their unique tastes, and created to connect with the circumstances of its surroundings/environment.

Heather N. Krausses Summary

My Architecture is inspired by the culmination of each project's unique set of circumstances organically composed with a most natural balance of aesthetics and function; it's essence enhanced by engaging the spirit of life, environment, and art.

Whether creating "Slow Living" settings or gracefully incorporating modern convenience, my work has respectfully appreciated, embraced and celebrated the spirit and styles of the past and the now with a vision for a sustainable future. New homes, whether historic resproductions or contemporary modern free in form, engage a degree of nostalgia which grounds the design in place and in heart, connecting the client through new and inspired, yet familiar relationships.
