Colorado Architect and Former General Contractor
Applying over thirty years of varied experience as an architect as well as general contractor, Richard creates designs that are spatially efficient, economical to construct, and pleasing to the eye. With strict adherence to each project's program requirements and careful attention to detail, his designs routinely exceed his clients' expectations. A bit of a perfectionist, he never takes shortcuts and won't present a design until he feels it is as good as it can be.
Richard has completed projects in Colorado, Florida, New York, Connecticut, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oregon, Mexico, and the Bahamas. Using materials and architectural styles appropriate for each locale, his designs are always sensitive to their sites and surroundings.
Having built seventeen of his own designs, Richard's hands-on construction experience minimizes construction cost, and helps deliver projects on time and on budget.

-single family custom and 'spec' homes
