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 each client. After the client and I discuss their project goals in detail, I create design options to review with them, and the best aspects of each option are combined into 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 coordinate the bidding and permitting processes and then visit the job site during construction. 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.
