Jeffrey Dungan, AHL Jeffrey Dungan: Natural Materials, Light & Timeless Simplicity
Where we might see a web of complexity, this seasoned architect’s lens yields elegant simplicity. And WONDER.
Seeing is everything. So is listening. He says if you listen closely enough to a site, the house will almost design itself.
Oh that all this modern noise rattling the construction site of my life might quiet so I may better hear what Dungan hears.

There will forever be noise–let me become a better listener.
Interior Design: Beth Webb
To the sweet note vibrating on the air.
So I may hear and know what is mine to nurture and what is mine to let be.
So I may listen with discernment and compassion so others are comforted by the architecture of its loving shelter.
MILIEU – Interior Design: Robin Rains

WHEN WE HEAR THE WORD BEAUTY, WE INEVITABLY THINK THAT BEAUTY BELONGS IN A SPECIAL ELITE REALM WHERE ONLY THE EXTRAORDINARY DWELLS.

A WORLD WITHOUT BEAUTY WOULD BE UNBEARABLE. -John O’Donohue
“KEEP CLOSE TO NATURE’S HEART…AND BREAK CLEAR AWAY, ONCE IN AWHILE, AND CLIMB A MOUNTAIN OR SPEND A WEEK IN THE WOODS. WASH YOUR SPIRIT CLEAN” (John Muir). Architecture & Light
