Philosophy

I have a passion for classical architecture. I am inspired by architecture where classical design principles, such as balance and symmetry, proper scale and proportion, and axial planning
are revealed.

I am dedicated to bringing the Architect’s vision to reality with utmost care and sensitivity. Our craftsmanship, chisel marks, and brush strokes are expressed in the fulfillment of the Architect’s vision. Our commitment to excellence in detailing profoundly influences the interpretation of
that vision.

The hidden qualities of our houses are just as important as the visual beauty. It is these qualities that protect the beauty and integrity of the home from the elements, as well as the health of those who
live there.

My desire is to build heritage homes that stand the test of time and create a mystery regarding their age. They are crafted for the enjoyment of the Owners as well as generations to come.

I love to use building materials that age gracefully and connect us to our past. The character of weathered wood, the patina of copper as it ages, the aged character of reclaimed materials such as handmade brick, slate, or terra cotta tiles are especially beautiful.

I am committed to green building principles such as Indoor Air Quality, Energy efficiency, and Resource efficiency so that my clients can benefit from a very healthy home environment with significantly lower resource requirements.

My detailed and proprietary construction specifications are based on many decades of construction education and experience. They are one of the tools we use to ensure workmanship of the highest standards.
