OUR STUDIO: THE ARCHITECTURE OF WELL BEING.
An ethic of thoughtful design, sustainability and collaboration.
THREE SIXTY ONE weaves these three threads in a innovative approach to create healthy, enlivened architecture. With a background in construction, we work side by side with contractors to ensure the design intent and quality construction are executed. High quality construction and eloquent design must be inextricably linked for a successful project. With an emphasis on collaboration, we assemble teams drawing from a pool of qualified consultants that are tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients and the project .
We love what we do here and bring our passion to each project regardless of size. As parents of young (but growing fast!) children, we strive to practice an Architecture of Well Being. Our commitment to sustainable architecture resulted in a groundbreaking bamboo structural prefabricated panel house. See the Bamboo House in our portfolio for more details.
