WELCOME TO YOUR JOURNEY

 

Bringing your dreams to life is at the forefront of my practice. For over 35+ years, I have been designing eclectic contemporary architecture by fusing my talents in design, music, and art to create exclusive custom designs that reflect your unique essence. Our mutual collaboration realizes your vision. With over 200+ built projects and numerous awards, my experience ranges from country estates to beachfront homes, urban infill, multifamily enclaves and unique commercial projects. I am confident I can guide you through the process of building your dream home.

I listen. I collaborate. I create. Ideas materialize from paper to form through the language of design, and this enigmatic encounter manifests your dream. It is exciting, stimulating, and enlivening, and the transformation that occurs through design is by far one of the most invigorating tasks you will ever undertake. What no one wants to tell you is that there is a lot of work involved. Yes, many design decisions will need to be considered and made, which may take time. Finding a builder, establishing a budget, and developing a schedule requires diligence and patience. However, no one ever tells you that this is a deep journey of honesty, self-reflection, and discovery. Can you honestly build what you want; do you have enough money? What do you want your home to reflect; who are you, and what does your home say about you? Who is emerging through the materialization of this home? Who are you becoming? Building your own home is a metamorphosis of the Self.

I guide you through all phases of the architectural process, helping you along the way with design considerations and decisions. By working with me, you'll be able to see your home in 3D before construction. You'll have an intimate knowledge and experience of what it will look and feel like through computer technologies that allow you to walk through the living spaces. Working in sophisticated, state-of-the-art architectural computer software makes it possible for me to take you through the design and make changes in real-time. Having the ability to see your home virtually makes the design process more engaging and fun. These tools make it possible for you to have a visceral experience of your project, helping you to feel the result.
