About us

“Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.” – Steve Jobs

We think it means both.

We absolutely love what we do, and feel very fortunate to have experienced a lot of success doing it; and by “success,” we mean: bringing joy and satisfaction to our many former clients.

Because, when all is said and done, promising excellence and (over)delivering on that promise is what we do, and what defines us.

Until a couple of years ago our experience was not solely, nor even primarily, in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Rather, it was some 30 years of successful home design, building, and remodeling in dynamic, high-ticket, North American markets – especially the San Francisco Bay Area. (Check out our Past Projects page here for a small selection of those.)

But we relocated our enterprise to the beautiful Turks & Caicos Islands in 2016, after almost two decades during which we became intimately familiar with the Islands while owning and re-building our own property residences there.  

Since then, we’ve completed two micro-development projects (Donkey Lane and Ridgeview) with three more (Karaya Blue, Ridgeview II, and Blue Mountain) – as well as several exciting one-off Design/Build projects – now underway.

But we are really just getting warmed up.

Every day we apply our deep experience to help our clients realize their dreams. We do this by:

  • Envisioning how best to optimize a location’s potential value
  • Analyzing and combining aesthetic, functional, economic, and environmental factors to satisfy & exceed our buyer’s goals
  • Applying and implementing a true user-centered perspective in the design and creation of every villa
  • Executing flawlessly in an imperfect world.

Because both villa design and building are ultimately team efforts, we’ve also invested much time and effort in assembling what we believe is the most talented independent development team at work in the Islands. Some of its members are listed below, so please feel free to check them out. (Although we’d advise a little skepticism around our realtor – he used to be a lawyer.)

World-class design.

Our intention is always to create finished villas that map as closely as possible to our buyer’s needs & values, so we are acutely interested in and responsive to our buyer’s ideas for customizing the designs.
