Comfortable, edible, beautiful, clever, simple, and functional 

Understory provides Design Services based in Permaculture and Whole Systems. We work on a consulting basis and/or assemble teams of designers, project managers, and contractors to fully realize your emerging and evolving vision.

We work with our clients to help you identify what you want, expand your vision of what is possible, and work with your existing assets, resources, and habits. 

We design to integrate material infrastructure with human dwelling: We are dedicated to the ideas that Good Design Is For Everyone, and that we should all get more self-sufficient pretty darn soon.
