Whole House Design for Human Beings

The Holistic Approach - Projects designed and built with a holistic approach - that is “from the whole” - are more organized and generally of greater quality than those done without considering the emotional, psychological and circumstantial needs of the inhabitants.

There is less error and a greater percentage of the work is right the first time when designers and clients "think holistic".

That’s one of the secrets to quality construction. Try to get as much of it right the first time as you can. So don't just think about "how to" do your project. Think about how your project can be tailored to your life!

Mistakes can be corrected and often without any great loss in quality, but the loss in time and money can’t be recovered.
