ALTUS Architecture + Design
Founded in 1995 with an objective to create client centered, site specific architecture for living, the architects have pursued an issues-based design process of enlightened contextualism – a belief in place-making that allows each project to express an individual identity while evoking intangible experiential qualities. The issues they focus on developing are: the site and the gifts of the land, natural light and the path of the sun, human scale, and the nature of materials and craft. The understanding of these issues has resulted in the houses they have created. Each project is unique – a reflection of its specific location and owner identity balancing what is timeless and enlightened, evoking memorable experiences.
