Design Philosophy

I view design as a comprehensive process. I carefully consider the existing site and landscape features, respect the impact of natural forces, and work with the surrounding environment to coax the best from it. I draw inspiration from my travels, discussions with colleagues, attending conferences, reading, and always observing. My goal for each project is to produce a design solution which is responsive to my client, to each individual site, to the larger environment, and to the architectural, historical and social context in which the project occurs.
