We create enduring spaces, inspired by our clients and the way they live. Wary of trends, our work combines classic American design with a modern instinct for simplicity. Emphasizing common sense architectural solutions, spatial planning, color and lasting materials, Dewar Lake creates fresh interiors that endure over time.
