Lindsey is committed to incorporating natural and raw materials wherever possible in any project. She specializes in determining when, where, and how these materials can be the most appropriate and beautiful solution. She has balanced her design career with many seasons of construction work doing everything from framing to fine plastering, electrical work and management. Also an educator, Lindsey has led natural building workshops in North Carolina and was a visiting lecturer at Universidad de Valle de Mexico. She has a fierce belief that design makes and breaks communities and has substantial experience with tribal affordable housing. Lindsey is not currently licensed but is in the process of taking exams for licensure in Idaho.
In the winter, Lindsey is the high school nordic ski coach and in the summer she loves to trail run and backpack.

Kluane is enthralled by the positive impact architectural design can have on individuals, families, and society at large. She believes that every project should both reflect and enhance the lives of its inhabitants. In addition to her experience in Landscape Design, Kluane has worked in both the production, and design wings of architectural firms, and finds value in designs that are inspired, yet down-to-earth. Speaking of earth, Kluane is also an advocate for natural building materials’ ability to make a big impact on inhabitants’ lives, in balance with making minimal impact on the environment.
When not designing, Kluane may be found on a bicycle, a set of cross-country skis, or having a spirited architecture discussion over a home-brewed cup of coffee.
