A great home isn't just about where
you live, it's about how you live. Good Design
is the crucial first step towards a beautiful and functional
home or a successful commercial project. Getting it
right at the design stage will save time and money,
provide for a smoother building experience, and make
the process more enjoyable. Innovation comes from thinking
about how we live and interact with our surroundings.
A creative partnership pairs your vision
with my expertise, translating desires and imagination
into a workable plan that will bring satisfaction for
years to come.
My designs are
practical, functional AND beautiful. I understand
the buidling process, and I'm realistic about
what it will cost.
Unlike other builders
and designers, I listen. We can start with a sketch
on a napkin, a floorplan from a magazine or a
blank sheet of paper - your project will be tailored
With a respect
for the past and talent for interpreting classic
designs, my designs meet and exceed the needs
of today. Whether you are looking for cozy and
intimate, grand and expansive, we will work together
to create a home or office that is beatuiful,
functional, durable and timeless.
- A building should fit its site;
aestheicis, solar orientation, view, slop access,
etc. are all integral in good design.
- Energy efficiency is invaluable
as a design criteria
- "Green" building materials
and practices (renewable resources) are always
the preferred solution
- Cost effectiveness means balancing
priorities to meet your expectations.
- Natural and locally available
materials not only add character but help define
the sense of place, making the building harmoneous
with its surroundings.
- Abundant natural light makes
a house a home; windows are a priority design
follows function - that has been misunderstood.
Form and function should be one, joined in
Modern project-design and planning involves much
more than the structure itself. Both consulting and
design provide for other aspects of every building
project; visit the Consulting
