Philosophy

IMG_3228At place architecture, design is our passion. Our expertise lies in providing innovative design services while managing the complexities of the construction process. We work together to determine the best solution that will benefit the project, the environment, and, ultimately, your family.

We take pride in being stewards of our environment, designing with sustainability in mind. As a proponent of building less square footage, without compromising the quality of life, we integrate into our work ‘the not so big house’ philosophy [www.notsobighouse.com] created by architect Sarah Susanka, AIA. Building well designed, flexible spaces with a smaller footprint enables our clients to enjoy all the areas of their home and consume far less energy. Smart choices to consider, in any project, but not limited to, are site orientation; cross ventilation; day-lighting; material and product selection; lighting; energy-efficient systems; and energy star appliances.

I pride myself in offering personal attention from start to finish, and serving as my client’s advocate throughout the process.

place architecture:design is a service-oriented architectural firm that will help prioritize your ideas and work to your construction budget. We LISTEN. We CARE. We share your VISION. We are your ADVOCATE.
