About Us

  • on Angie's List for 4 years
Residential architecture is typically defined by the tiresome “cookie-cutter” boxed homes that are typical in design and traditional in aesthetics. Unfortunately for many home buyers, their dream home has been hastily designed by a contractor or builder with little-to-no design experience, expertise, or architectural education at all. Regrettably, this floods the market with production homes that do not illustrate or showcase any unique or incomparable qualities that are select and exclusive to that home buyer. My philosophy in residential design has always been to create and design homes that go beyond the “standard” ideas by pursuing projects and concepts that are inspired by land layout, house location, and functionality: form follows function. Simplicity in form and design frees the home of typical clutter and unnecessary elements. A home designed with superfluous elements stripped away focuses then on space and form rather than décor and details that are not relevant to the overall design – a “less is more” philosophy to aesthetics. Homes should showcase the “truth” of elements within, hiding nothing or altering elements to be deceitful. Exposed beams, open floor plans, and structural elements can be implemented into the design aspects of the home. Linear lines with bold horizontal and vertical features, such as around windows, doors, and fireplaces, all add to a linear-inspired space. Bold and powerful roof lines can be used to create a more unique and artistic sculptured statement. This has been my focus for the past 22 years. I am adding to this experience a psychological approach to educate and support residential contractors and home builders on how to fully understand their customer’s desires and wishes when it comes to constructing their home. I also can assist the home-buyer by educating them on the design and construction process, making sure all facets are taken into consideration and nothing is regrettably overlooked.
