Focusing on rural homes in New England with emphasis on excellent plans, emotionally uplifting spaces, low energy use, tactile and locally sourced materials and a very collaborative process.

 

“Bluetime” is the winter twilight time when I am in my office working hard or going for a snowshoe and the world here in Vermont turns a quiet and luminescent blue before it gets dark. This is an especially focusing and productive time of day for me when I begin my transition from work to family. Bluetime Collaborative represents the evolution of my firm toward a more integrated and holistic approach to design and construction where all collaborators are involved with all aspects of a project from start to finish. The result is a higher quality project with a greater degree of accountability and control for the client, the builder and myself.
