New Classicists: Appleton & Associates Architects

di Marc Appleton

The design work of Marc Appleton's practice is a collaborative process with its clients, inspired by and responsive to their specific desires and needs. Frequently, it draws upon the time-honoured traditions of vernacular architecture, subtly reinterpreting them to evoke a presence of the past.

The firm strives to avoid a repetitiously personalized style and is committed to the idea that architecture is a craft rather than an art, a process rather than an object. Appleton agrees with fellow Californian architect William Wurster's view that architecture is for people, 'the picture frame, and not the picture'.
