About

There is a lot of theory in architecture, it’s one of the things about it that appeals to me. If we were really just interested in shelter, we wouldn’t need architects. Architecture is more than just shelter, is creating space that connects with people on an emotional level.

When I design homes (most of my work), I think a lot about who’s going to be living in them. I learn a bit about my clients, what they like, how their life experience has shaped them. This history enables me to create homes that are comfortable and reinforcing and as unique and custom as their owners.

The context or environment of the site is also relevant. I work to insure your design is appropriate for its location. Regional and cultural influences help bind your new home to the landscape and give it a sense of belonging.

Designing is the application of hundreds of choices and decisions. The outcome is largely dependent on the core philosophy of the designer. Especially when it comes to homes, understanding people in general, my clients in particular and the environment in which we’re building is the key to getting it right.
