Tim became an architect and a member of the AIA then founded Impluvium Architecture in the year 2000. Impluvium – a term from ancient Rome – is a courtyard with a water feature. Allowing living space to flow and interact between the indoors and outdoors is something that Tim has pursued not only in his professional experience but also through his extensive travels in Asia and Europe. Voula (his wife) is from Greece and their frequent extended visits to Europe have broadened his appreciation of traditional design developed over generations and how it can be applied in a contemporary context. This foundation has developed not just by visiting as a tourist, but by walking the ancient ruins, traditional villages, contemporary museums and various projects while living there for a few months of the year. Tim also has a number of modern projects as well including Impluvium's new home / office under construction. See www.AllyLocal.com for Impluvium's current projects (Tim also created AllyLocal.com as a business network site). It's not just studying history first hand or experiencing modern buildings, however, Tim has discovered that projects must be inspired by the owner’s life and must also be informed by the context of the site for the project. Instead of presenting something to a client and convincing them that his concept is what they are trying to achieve, Tim draws out the design from the owner’s experiences and travels. This makes the process of design an interactive and educational experience for everyone involved in the project. Architecture is creating something that has meaning and can last. Being an architect is not about handing over a project and moving onto the next one – it is about making sure that the project will be cherished and cared for by its owners and everyone that experiences it for years and even for generations.

We are an architectural firm based in Danville, California specializing in custom residential, commercial, public, and recreational projects. Our residential work includes new custom homes, additions, remodels, and outdoor living. Commercial work includes office, retail, tenant improvements, accessibility, mixed use, and more. We also work with developers for production residential and multi-family projects. Our custom residential work includes new homes, remodels and additions of all sizes. Increasingly, we are drawn to the challenge of such “micro-mixed use” infill projects as property values demand greater development intensity. Mountain architecture serves as a satisfying counterpoint to our urban and suburban work, with custom home and ranch projects in the Tahoe-Truckee region. The exchange of ideas, materials and detailing between our urban and mountain projects strengthens both areas of work. Licensed in California and Nevada.

My foray into architecture started in high school when I decided to expand my family's Santa Barbara home into its large unfinished attic. My parents and neighbors were a little alarmed when they came home from work and saw that I had cut a large hole in the side of the house for a new door and stairway. For the next four summers I worked for contractors and electricians so that I could learn the skills needed to finish the attic into livable space. At UC Berkeley, I studied architecture and civil engineering. After college, I worked in construction and was licensed as a general contractor. For the past 20 years, I have been working as an architect on new vacation homes throughout Northern California and remodels/renovations in the San Francisco Bay Area. My goal as an architect is to help you make the architecture and construction process a conscious effort and to create a beautiful and functional environment, unique to your personality and reflective of your specific needs. Life is but a dream. With a slant towards Hindu philosophy, my mother would argue that life is pre-determined and that ultimately we have no control over our lives. I would argue that we have the choice to create beautiful environments, and I meticulously work through the details to ensure that your dream becomes a reality. My design etiquette is restrained and comfortable, not gaudy. I love light and large windows, natural materials, and expression of the structure. I gravitate to work that is made by craftsmen rather than machine, to elements and details from the 1920s and before. Thank you for your consideration in having me help with your project. Rob Kelly
