A house is a home
The house engages the site; living in the house, we inhabit the site. A house is both private and open, intimate and inviting; a home is the atmosphere we build within the walls of a house: a refuge from the world outside. Both the private spaces and the shared spaces of designs are important in creating dwellings that we can share with family and friends - our homes.

Cameron is LEED certified.
The first step of the design process is to understand the environment with which the building will engage: the topography, vegetation, light and views, and the position of the building in relation to all of the above. Secondly, and just as important, is creating a building that meets the needs and lifestyle of its inhabitants.
Overall, we must consider how the design of a structure relates to the earth that we inhabit. Sustainable design is to use resources, land, and energy with maximum efficiency, considering renewable energy sources like wind, water, the sun, and the earth itself, without compromising the health and needs of future generations...to touch the earth without destroying it.
