Susan Appleton Architect

About Us

I believe in making spaces that are above all serene, that have abundant natural light, that have a sense of spaciousness even if they are relatively small, that are naturally energy efficient because they are carefully oriented on their sites and shaded to prevent heat gain. My goal is for every one of my clients to love their completed project so much that every time they leave, they can't wait to get home.
