Description

Mike Hamberg and Martin Tarafdar, who have collaborated on numerous projects since the early 1980’s, formed Border Studios in 1994. We have offices in Aspen, Colorado and Newcastle/Tahoe, California and we serve the greater Sacramento Area. The firm is conceived as a collective of talent that works beyond ‘borders'. That is to say, we work beyond physical and geographic constraints and do not bind ourselves to notions of architectural style or movements, but rather approach each project on its own merit. The design is allowed to evolve through an investigation and understanding of the site and its context, the budget and program objectives, while responding to the history and culture of the place. It is this connection to place that binds our work together and is the driving force of our design process. Creating and enhancing a sense of place through planning and architecture is the philosophical basis for our work. We believe our philosophy allows us to bring a much wider spectrum of resources to each project than is possible with a more traditional approach to design. Our work has focused primarily in the vernacular of high country mountain environments in the Western United States. We have been associated with creating a number of projects recognized by award in these regions. Please do not hesitate to contact our office for any additional information. We will be happy to assist in any way possible and if we are not a good fit we will endeavor to help you find a better match for your project. Thank you for visiting our page. We hope to be able to be of service....

I have a home on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe that was originally built in 1966 with a carport attached which was heavily damaged by the massive snow loads of 2011. I had always wanted to convert it into a garage because of the orientation of the roof which always had bad ice dams and dumped snow directly into the driveway. I finally had the excuse I needed to get it done. I found Borders Studios...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Designed a remodel project which included a garage addition to an existing home. Provided all the plans, engineeering documentation, and county permit requirements.

Services Offered

Full service architectural firm. I work with outside engineers / surveyors / consultants, to offer full service but my work is limited to architectural design. I do not add a consultation fee for my interaction with outside professionals. Because my work is limited to design I typically work for an hourly fee. Billing is incremental and should you become dissatisfied for any reason, you can terminate my services at any stage and keep the work I have performed to that point.
