West Architecture Studio knows that the best projects result from close collaboration with our clients – that’s why we strive to listen and discuss our client’s goals extensively before putting pen to paper. We design both traditional and contemporary homes that follow classic ideas about proportion and detail and allow projects to age gracefully, giving them a certain independence from “of-themoment” style and trend. We imbue warmth and texture into unique and inviting spaces that convey a wholistic character, countering the sterility often seen in many contemporary designs. This is often achieved through the use of natural woods and other organic materials, simple but interesting textures, and careful merging of landscape with building. After nearly 20 years of designing inspiring homes, S. Scott West, AIA, LEED AP brings a wealth of experience, budgeting knowledge, and creativity to every project.

All you have to do is step out your back door and you’re there. The professionals at Big Creek Landscapes will work closely with you as a team to develop a custom plan for your yard after carefully evaluating, considering and discussing every aspect of the project with you. Important things to think about include use of space, topography, trafﬁc ﬂow, function, aesthetics and budget.

If you have a large scale vision but are concerned about budget, consider an overall plan to be completed over multiple phases of construction.
