Drawing from the unique characteristics of each project and client, Surroundings creates environments for living that are beautiful, elegant, interesting and timeless.


We consider design to be a
problem-solving endeavor.

Each project is a puzzle with many qualifications and constraints and one simply elegant solution.

Our design team is passionate about implementing ideas that satisfy all of the client’s needs, not our own design ideals.  Our role is to uphold the client’s intent as we move the project forward toward a unique result.

Aligned with this problem-solving exercise, we also guide our clients through the maze of material selections, budgetary concerns, structural requirements, color philosophy and functional needs, ultimately guiding each client to the ideal design solution.
