About the Firm 
My approach to the design process includes a very interactive role for my clients. I firmly believe that the most successful design solutions are those that are not only respectful of their surrounding context, but also address the unique functional and aesthetic requirements of each client. My architectural practice is committed to the idea that flexibility and a willingness to explore design alternatives, combined with solid technical knowledge and a sensitivity to the client's concerns, is fundamental to achieving success.
