Our Team

Michael and Jaclyn Varland

Ever since Michael was little, he was constantly dismantling everything just to see how to put it back together, and better. This knack for how things are built has been a fascinating tool for the never ending architectural and design world he surrounds himself with.

Jaclyn loves human life, the natural world, and the built environment we live in and has done everything she can to harness her talents and become a life long student of human interaction, nature, and how these affect design and architecture.

Together Michael and Jaclyn's love for design and social experiences is harnessed with every new relationship by continuing to push the envelope for how we live. If we are not late night sketching or drafting up the next big idea from our dreams, you can find us tackling another construction project in the restoration of our century old home in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

Elizabeth Wiecek

A talented designer, artist, and graduate of University of Cincinnati, DAAP, Elizabeth is a cornerstone of our creative design team.  

Nathan Karlsen

Graduating with a Master of Architecture degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology, Nathan holds a love for societal and cultural aspects of architecture brings a detailed framework of design to the table.
