As the work done by Dana Bixby Architecture has evolved over the years, we have come to see that we have carried out a number of residential renovation projects which became very significant transformations of the original house we started with.

Sometimes the owner had clear intentions to make the significant transformation that we created.  Other times the transformation developed out of the process of working with the client and asking questions about the quality and type of space they wanted, the strategic goals they had for the house in relation to their family, and how it might change and evolve in their use of the house.

Strategic planning through design, which is what we do, balances many factors of cost, needs, function, aesthetics, sustainability, projections of the future, and architecture.
