Our homes personify who we are in a physical structure that we share with the world. Our homes express our physical needs emotional desires and our dreams, making the design process dependent on a strong, personal collaboration between Architect and Client.
The South is well know for it’s historical residential buildings. Theses buildings require restoration, renovation and updating to remain useful. Some projects call for new structures that blend with their historic neighbors. All of these projects require the knowledge of style and touch from the right people.
Building green or sustainable can be simple or complex. Third party certifications such as LEED, Earthcraft or NAHB Green can lend credibility as well as provide a means of determining if a project’s goals have been accomplished. While technology can play a role in green building, many lessons from our past can be just as effective without the impact of added expense. Ask us how we can achieve your goals beautifully and cost effectively.
Every project and client is unique. Most of us only get to build our dream home once, so it’s important to get it right the first time with our primary home. Guided by experienced professionals, this can be a very rewarding experience and many of the overwhelming decisions can be managed in a manner that makes the process enjoyable.
A secondary residence is typically experienced much differently than a primary residence. This requires someone to guide you through the decision making process differently. Often this process requires assistance to insure proper communication and handling the challenges presented with building over long distances.
Building a home on a large parcel of land involves much more than a typical home. Proper placement of the home and outbuildings, driveways, recreational areas, gardens and utilities are some of the major decisions unique to this type of endeavor. Having the right people involved can eliminate costly errors, reduce costs and insure that all aspects of the project complement each other for Estates.
Today’s buyers are more educated than ever and consider their total lifestyle when buying a new home. We can help evaluate potential sites and explore options to create an environment that will attract buyers. Building a home for sale requires knowledge of buyer preferences with something special that makes a home stand above the competition without increasing costs.

I began my architectural journey at a young age and began working various construction jobs until my first job as an intern architect in 1982. From that early start I developed a passion for small projects which allowed me to be very involved with every facet of design and construction. I’ve had the privilege to work with so many wonderful people since establishing my firm in 1986 that I continue to look forward to every new project and the opportunity to show people how to create places to live and work that actually respond to, and influence their lives in a positive way.
