A B O U T :
Sun Valley is consistently cited as one of the best places for raising the family, enjoying the simple resort-town lifestyle or just living close to the nature, be it skiing, fishing, biking or hiking. As an architect, I have been given an opportunity to design some of the homes for those who have discovered this "hidden secret", from a vacation home to a full-time residence, giving the client a rare opportunity to tailor it according to their lifestyle!
With the rise in cost of building materials and labor, it is more important now than ever to keep the construction expenses within the set budget, which is established early in the design process. The goal is to stay fairly close to that number, home size being the largest variable here, followed closely by the fit and finish! Also, although ""above code" construction in Sun Valley has always been a norm, we encourage our clients to consider alternative energy systems and make it our duty to make them aware of available options, while taking full advantage of the high number of sunny days here in "Sun Valley"!
Many architects have developed a reputation for imposing their particular design style on the client; something we try to avoid. It is more important to work with the client's lifestyle and not have them adopt to our design! We prefer to extract the needed information from the client, while zeroing-in on the final "modus operandi". After creating a few alternative sketches and floor plans, we collectively select the "correct" design-style.

Eddy moved to Ketchum in 1990 and started the home-design business in 1994. Since then he has designed some of the finest homes in and around Sun Valley. Many of the projects have been featured numerous times in local magazine's and published in books such as "Unique Homes of Idaho" and "Spectacular Homes of the Northwest".

We work out of Boise now, yet keep all our client-meetings in Ketchum. Also, we are licensed in most Western states, from California to Idaho to Colorado.
W H A T :
We are a small architectural firm who believes that client-participation is an essential factor in all of the designs. It is the only way the building can reflect the client's needs accurately. We pride ourselves on the ability to see projects through others’ eyes.
H O W :
All of our designs are one a kind custom projects and we never use slightly modified stock plans and call them "custom". From site selection to the look and feel of the final design, we always stay focused on enhancing our clients’ lives through personal attention to the smallest details.
W H E N :
All our initial meetings, site-walks and consultations are complementary and we would be glad to be involved in the site selection. Please do not hesitate to call/email, we'll try our best to answer all the questions!
