Bring the Essence of Beauty to Your Home 

If you want a dark, warm, wood in your space, then use a dark, warm wood, like walnut, rather than staining a lighter wood, such as oak, darker. This is the essence of architectural materiality. Of course, there are always exceptions, especially when an impact is desired.

Materials are the medium in which we create our art; much in the same way a sculptor uses clay. Architects today have so many options available that we use our own specific filter called Of the Place to help distill down materials appropriate for your plans.
