Architectural Design Approach
My aim is to create beautiful places that will be loved by the people who use them. I feel that beauty in architecture comes from the harmony of all parts of the design forming a coherent whole, in which each part is also beautiful in itself.
I work with color, pattern, materials, and the play of natural and artificial light to intensify the beauty of spaces and also consider physical comfort, sounds, and tactile qualities. I believe that our lives can be deeply nurtured by our physical environments.
Green Sustainable Design &
I am committed to sustainable design and healthy environments, and I bring my knowledge of their principles to each project. I am experienced in historic preservation, and believe that our communities are enriched when we preserve and revitalize historic structures. I focus on the marriage of “green” and preservation when working on older buildings.
