Design Philosophy


At the core of my architectural and interior design practice lies a rich tapestry woven from my diverse background, shaped by extensive travel and immersion in myriad cultures. This global journey has gifted me with a profound appreciation for the beauty and nuances of design, fostering a unique perspective that transcends geographical boundaries.

In crafting spaces that resonate with timeless elegance and sophistication, I draw inspiration from the eclectic blend of experiences encountered on my travels. Each locale, from the sun-kissed shores of California to the tranquil landscapes of Japan and the rugged coastlines of the Pacific Northwest, has left an indelible mark on my aesthetic sensibilities.

Central to my design philosophy is the belief in crafting bespoke environments that transcend fleeting trends, instead embodying a sense of timelessness and enduring beauty. Rejecting the notion of generic design, I approach each project as a canvas to be meticulously tailored to capture the unique opportunities presented by each site, and by the personality and preferences of each client, 

Drawing upon influences ranging from the understated elegance of Olson Kundig to the refined simplicity of Peter Zumthor, my designs are characterized by their subtle yet impactful details. Layered textures, natural materials, and thoughtful compositions converge to create spaces that exude warmth, authenticity, and a sense of effortless sophistication. Each design element is carefully curated to strike a delicate balance between form and function, resulting in spaces that are both visually captivating and supremely functional.

In essence, my design philosophy is a testament to the transformative power of thoughtful design, guided by a reverence for craftsmanship, authenticity, and the inherent beauty of the natural world. Through a meticulous process of collaboration and exploration, I seek to create spaces that transcend the confines of time and place, enriching the lives of those who inhabit them for years to come.

Our Process

01  Coffee + Consultation
Our journey begins with an intimate conversation over coffee or tea, where we dive into your vision, ideas, goals, and desires for your bespoke residence. We want to get to know you – your lifestyle, tastes, and aspirations – so we can create the architecture and interiors that reflect your essence and elevate your everyday living experience.

02  Site Immersion + Analysis
With a sketchbook in hand, we head out to your property to assess the lay of the land. Immersing ourselves in its topography, vistas, and context. This step allows us to engage with the land, seek features that could inspire the design, and access any constraints or opportunities.

03  Design Framework
Back in the studio, fueled by the musings of our site visit, we dive headfirst into the creative process of conceptualization and design explorations. With each stroke of the pen and inspiration gathered, we weave together a tapestry of architectural elements, textures, and spatial narratives that breathe life into your vision. Mood boards, sketches, and 3D renderings are utilized to communicate design concepts and refine the vision collaboratively with the client.

04  Collaborative Design Dialogue
As we proceed with the detailed design development phase, we embark on a collaborative journey where your aspirations merge seamlessly with our architectural expertise. This involves creating comprehensive architectural drawings, floor plans, elevations, and material specifications that outline every aspect of the project in meticulous detail. We pay special attention to craftsmanship, functionality, and aesthetic appeal, ensuring that every element contributes to the overall design narrative. 

05  Material Poetry + Procurement
With the design vision crystallized, we’ll aid in the sourcing of high-quality materials, finishes, fixtures and furnishings that will complement the architecture and pull the design together holistically. We leverage our trusty network of suppliers, artisans, and craftsmen to source bespoke pieces that elevate the space and are a reflection of the clients’ discerning taste.

06  Construction + Oversight
With every hammer strike and brushstroke, we move full steam ahead into construction. We’ll collaborate closely with our trusted team of contractors, tradespeople, and artisans to ensure that every detail is executed with the utmost care, craftsmanship, and according to schedule. With regular site visits and coordination meetings, we’ll keep you in the loop every step of the way.

07  Install + Walkthrough
As the project approaches completion, we meticulously oversee the installation of fluid elements like furnishings and artwork, orchestrating every detail until the space is meticulously styled to perfection. We’ll conduct a final walkthrough together, showcasing the completed project as a testament to the transformative power of architecture to elevate our everyday surroundings.
