Firm principals Benjamin Bradley and David Thiergartner refer to themselves as “tailored traditionalists.” From traditional foundations, they craft modern classics that are meticulously edited, memorable, enduring and above all, livable. Often cited in print for their impeccable taste and peerless execution, what clients most remark upon is the team’s uncanny ability to bring to life unspoken dreams.
The key to their two decades of success is part rigorous professional process, part ability to create spaces perfectly tailored to their clients and part their characteristic style – an emblematic honesty, responsiveness and wit. The team’s mission, and their calculus for great design, is to deliver homes that are not only beautiful, but homes that radiate warmth, comfort and joy.
The design duo has an abiding design philosophy: design needs tension to create energy and dynamism. That fine balance is attained by combining the unexpected or unusual - classic with contemporary – the serious with the whimsical – ornamental with the unadorned. The juxtaposition catches and holds our interest and enlivens the space.
