The Whole House Design Approach
I design holistically. i do not consider the role of architecture to stop at the form. I am not in the shell design work. A house is an organism the functions as a unit – a whole.
I focus on form, scale, light, materials, furnishings and fixtures to give the house a unified tailored personality.
There is grace and power birthed through a unified design approach. Clarity in design intent and fidelity in realization are architecture's accolades.
I take my role as architect very seriously and strongly believe in the value I bring to design solutions.
I am drawn to the appeal of the sculptural in architecture but adhere to the driving power of what design can deliver – living spaces that caress, affirm and inspire.
I know from experience that optimal results come about when owner and architect work as partners. This one team approach unleashes the powers of design solutions to best address project needs.
A new house is a major undertaking. An orchestral performance with many characters, parts, deadlines and personal choices that converge, over time, to produce a finished structure. No one can inspire it, guide it and deliver it like an architect.
