Design Philosophy

...what processes and principles are employed to get to a finished design that works for YOU?




My focus has always been to create functional, appropriate and intuitive spaces designed around the way the client live their lives, reflect their unique lifestyle and integrate the design responsibly with the surrounding environment.


Each unique design manifests organically throughout the process by:

  • listening carefully without presumption

  • establishing a clear vision of the project fiscal and aesthetic goals

  • nurturing a collaborative atmosphere between client, designer and contractor

  • calibration throughout the design-development phase via careful measuring of responses and critical analysis until the vision is realized

  • drawing on past experiences, current building practices, local wisdom, and understanding the logistics of navigating local jurisdiction review processes.


Every client, every project, every site, every budget... they're all unique, and they all demand a unique solution.

Looking to some of the great architects for some inspiration and time-tested advice is always a good exercise for any designer.

These wise words from iconic architects and designers are the foundation for how I design your project...
