23 High Street

Located in Portsmouth's historic downtown, the design preserves the foremost identity of the past, exposed brick and beam. Within these confines is inserted the intangible: space, light and transparency.

In relocating our offices, we found ourselves poised with the unique opportunity to demonstrate our ideals in design-- to illustrate the philosophy we practice. The scale was life-size, the inspiration was our own. The project was to prove the importance of thoroughness in design; to look at every component, every material, its color and texture and its effect on the whole; to exemplify what we believe.
