YES, THIS IS AN AD FOR AN ARCHITECTURE FIRM. WITHOUT ANY PICTURES OF ARCHITECTURE.
IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT BUILDING A HOME, STOP LOOKING AT PHOTOS OF HOMES, OK?
Instead, let’s talk about what no picture, especially a teeny tiny cellphone-sized image can capture: the experience of living in a beautiful home. By that, we mean a structure that not only delights the eye but feels exactly right–every hour the sun passes through it, every season of the year. A home that perfectly complements site, neighborhood, landscape and the other way around. A home that feels as if it’s been there forever, and will be there forever. These are some of the things we consider when we design a new home. The context, environment, and most importantly you.
At TEA2, we don’t have a cookie-cutter style; every home we design is a reflection of our clients’ vision and dreams. Yours. We come to the table with no preconceived notions, no greatest hit that we’re intent on replicating. Just questions and curiosity and experience and loads of talent. Our fans say they can always identify a TEA2 home–not by period, or style, or size, or location (because we’ve designed them all) but because it “looks like you took your time.” The simplest translation of that? God isn’t in the details; God is the details. We make functional necessaries like roof vents beautiful and integral to the design. If we’re creating a curved surface, we make it a sexy curve. We design kitchens that feel like living spaces but work like workhorses, and great rooms that live up to their adjectives. The list goes on. Is obsessive attention to detail important to you? Do you want your balusters carefully and lovingly considered? (Do you know what balusters are?) If so, we should talk. We help clients at every level, not just multi-millionaires, get the most house for their money. And if you don’t mind reading more words (yes we like words), visit our website. tea2architects.com
