Home Professionals Directory

It's time for a different kind of house. A house that is more than square footage: a house that is Not So Big, where each room is used every day. The Not So Big House isn't just a small house. Rather, it's a smaller house, filled with special details and designed to accommodate the lifestyles of its occupants. The Home Professionals Directory is comprised of those who embrace the Not So Big philosophy.

About Our Company:

Ligature Studio, LLC aims to provide an environment that engages the client with interactive design. The purpose of Ligature is to create a workshop for clients to help them realize their ideas through sight, touch, and conversation. Our Studio intends to teach the new home owner the language of design and give their ideas a voice. At Ligature, we take clients on virtual walk-throughs, designing the details of what makes a house a home and `tying` each element, idea and wish into cohesive, beautiful whole to be called home.

Origin of the Name:

This process of `tying` elements, ideas and wishes together into a new unified form, is what inspired the name `Ligature.` Typographically, a ligature is a combination of two or more letters into a single symbol. In music notation, a ligature is a graphic symbol that tells a musician to perform two or more notes in a single gesture, and on a single syllable. Also, I did not want this architectural service to be about me, thus, I refrained from using my name for the business. You may notice the combination of the `UR` in the name `Ligature,` reminding us that as the client, `you are` what is important.

Todd Oeftger, AIA:

Worked as a commercial architect for most of my career. Took some time off to try other things. Then discovered the Not So Big House series and was inspired to dive into designing homes that were suited for the people living in it. I love helping people see new possibilities that more closely match their personal dream.
