Pugh + Scarpa have been on my favorite architect list since I was introduced to their work surrounding the rebuilding of New Orleans. Their Make-It-Right duplex has the true lines of a house that I appreciate. Their houses look like houses, and when they need to rise above the ground they do so with a barely noticeable way of growing.
