We believe architecture shapes our experience of the world, particularly our homes. We strive to create architecture that manifests the experiences we want to have in our lives.

Pine + Peak Studio creates simple, thoughtful homes that celebrate the beauty of the natural environment, surrounding site and functionality of everyday life. We are a full-service oriented firm and specialize in custom residential homes and renovations. Each project comes with its own unique set of constraints and conditions and we celebrate this in a design process that marries those constraints with our clients’ needs to deliver unique and inspired design solutions with thoughtful attention to detail. We understand that the best designs are a product of collaboration with our clients and take pride in developing those relationships. Our goal is to create a beautiful yet functional backdrop that enriches your everyday life.
