My objective is to blend contemporary and eclectic design sensibilities in order to express the unique quality of each design situation. Much of my work has centered on understanding older homes and designing seamless looking additions. This work has lead us to designing “new old” homes with the same charm and detail as their ancestors. I love to integrate the interior spaces with the outdoors as well as pay special attention to the direction of natural light. Of particular interest to me is Landscape Design and the integration of the interior design with planting, patios, decks and outside spaces that unify whole project.

Residential design is special to me because of the close and collaborative nature of the relationship that needs to be fostered with my clients. I consider it a privileged to be asked to work on a home. It is an opportunity to establish the trust required to promote a great design that enhances and broadens the experience of one’s home.

For me, no project is successful unless it has achieved a client’s design expectations as well as their financial planning. As a teenager, I worked on framing crews and later as a carpenter, so I have always maintained a strong connection to the construction process. This has enabled me to practice Architecture with an instinct for financial planning that has served both my clients and their builders as they formulate budgets and build projects.

My commitment to adhering to budgets is as strong as my dedication to great design. It is for this reason that I believe our projects express equally my client’s financial and aesthetic goals.
