Business Description
My 35 years of experience in commercial, institutional and residential design can help you develop your ideas, create a unique and beautiful design, and bring your project to a successful conclusion. I am licensed in DC, MD and VA and have successfully navigated the building permit process in Washington and the surrounding counties. I bring a combination of a willingness to listen, analytical skill, and design expertise to every project. The willingness to listen comes from the earnest belief that a projects success is best measured in the satisfaction of the people who use it on a daily basis.

Together we will seek to tease out the image of “what the building wants to be” based on its function, construction, historic nature and surroundings to develop a plan derived from the functional relationships of spaces and movement through the building, a sense of space that flows through the building, the honest expression of structure and materials, and a response to the context, the site and the environment. Design is problem solving, and is an ability based on talent and knowledge. Design expertise comes from many years of experience and an on-going fascination with engineering and the materials and methods of construction. It also comes from a strong aesthetic sense, founded not on preconceived styles or images, but a sense of proportion, balance and what is appropriate for the building.
