While we work out those details, if you’re interested in a custom print, please contact us for pricing at

davis studio A+D launches new website

Welcome to our new site! It had been a long time since we had done major website update and our old site was way out of date; a bit like the cobbler’s children not having any shoes. But we have the homepage and our new blog up and running so we at least we can give you updates on current projects and show off in fullscreen glory the excellent work of our photographers, Anthony Rich and David Cohen. Now we are busy organizing further content – more images of built projects and work in progress, sketches from upcoming projects, of course more beauty shots of interior and exterior completed projects. We will have detailed information about our Grow Community project and pieceHomes, our line of modular homes. You can also learn about pieceHomes and our design team on our other site:
