My work is inspired by the hopes and needs of my clients in conjunction with my desire to integrate the physical, emotional and spiritual realms. A particular architectural style is of less importance to me. Spatial volumes, interior and exterior shapes, an organized plan and adjacencies, the relationship and integral connection to the site, natural light, structure, materials, details, mechanical and lighting systems and a multitude of other factors all play a part in creating a building of worth. I have a small architectural design firm dedicated to offering my clients creative, inventive, thoughtful, joyful, inspirational, practical and build-able solutions. Having a small office with low overhead as well as the most up to date equipment enables me to offer high quality design and documentation services at very competitive professional fees. Work is done in a three dimensional CAD program that allows my client, the consultants, the general contractor and subcontractors to view the building and all of its components in three dimensions from any viewpoint right from the start. I have found this to be an enormous help and time saver for all involved, especially the client.
