Architecture serves as the vehicle of personal expression for both the client and the Architect. It is a constant rediscovery of human qualities translated into three dimensional form and space.

The design process seeks out to address the personal, the practical and the idiosyncratic needs of the client and the peculiarities that make a place or marks a special circumstance.

The parameters of the clients program and unique qualities of place help to form the ground work to reinterpret or augment these factors into a procession of movement through built space, explore the tactile or material side of the structure with a sense of intuitiveness in proportions, volumes, textures and color which gives architecture an emotional authenticity and buildings that are felt and experienced as much as seen.
