Architecture

 



My clients know their houses. They don’t want to move. I help make their houses suit their lives. Together we design better spaces.

​​​Each​ client is unique. Some ​need in-law suites; others, a workable kitchen. ​Some have children. Others don’t. My job is to help their houses work for them. Each house has its own issues and requires its own solutions.

 

I like to add light and flexibility so my spaces will be useful and delightful for many years.

Improving active and passive energy conservation is always part of my work.


Dismantling a house is always exciting.
Renovation reveals parts of the frame, the foundation, the joinery of an old house. But taking it down carefully shows us all of it.


I have worked with over 1200 houses, some modern, some 300 years old. See a representative list.

 


 

Why I don’t show interiors -
I am protecting my clients’ privacy.

 

My clients also make many of the decisions.

 

I redesigned this existing c. 1980 bath and laundry space to provide a full bath, a half bath with laundry, and a closet.

The interior details were chosen by the client.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I drew the location and basic dimensions for this built-in pantry tucked against a back wall when this client renovated the kitchen. The client easily customized the spaces. The carpenter made it happen.
