Our most rewarding work has been those special places
that can best be described as found not created.


Places where nature plays the leading role, such as the
6,000 acres of Castello di Casole in Tuscany, where we
started knee deep in mud, walking ancient ruins, even before
roads were in, but 2,000 years after its first owners called it home.

Let us tell you about the turnaround at Miraval

in the high Sonoran Desert,
a turnaround from 30% resort occupancy to over 80%, and a collection of astonishing LEED certified residences.

We’ve found ourselves on horseback at 9,000 feet in Colorado,

at the dead end of a 16-mile gravel road,
bringing a Greg Norman masterpiece to life.

In the Monument Valley, hours from civilization,

where the words of Edward Abbey and Wallace Stegner
inspired an Aman resort and residences.

In the Low Country and Upcountry of the Carolinas

where a conservancy office is the most prominent
address on the village square, the echos of Pat Conroy
are carried by the tides and our spokespeople were those
best versed in what makes Palmetto Bluff so special –
its conservation and program staff. Turnaround campaigns
as inspiring as they were successful for Palmetto Bluff and
the seven communities that are The Cliffs.
