I’m inspired by architecture that fits well with its setting, reflects the patterns of its use, and offers a richness of experience through its varied spaces and its careful use of daylight and materials. I’m also drawn to energy-efficient construction and other green building practices, and I’m accredited as a Certified Green Building Professional. I bring this sensibility and background to each project and work closely with my clients to produce designs that address their goals. After the client and I discuss the goals in detail, I create design options to review with them, and the best aspects of each option are combined in a final solution. The craft of my work is to synthesize many factors (the client’s goals, input from consultants, and code requirements, for example) into a thoughtful design. Once the design is completed, I take the project through the bidding, permit, and construction phases. It’s very gratifying to collaborate with each client and see their project develop from our early discussions into a final design, and then to experience the built design.
