CHARLIE DEESE | Architect. | Focused on integrated design where form and function are one and the same. | Designed his own home from top to bottom, providing a new perspective on challenges and myriad of necessary decisions. | Loved when Louis Kahn said, “I try to create homes, not houses.”
DAVID KOEL | Architect. | Architecturally speaking, believes simpler is always better. | Huge fan of team-building and creative design charrettes with clients and staff. | Award-winning designer, with a bunch of acrylic trophies on his shelf to prove it.
FRAN QUIRAM | Architect with a minor in interior design. | Believes successful architecture is derived from specific site parameters and influences, not just an idea. | Detailed-oriented and thrives on the various particulars of a project.
