Renovating a home should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for both the owner and architect. Very few experiences in life are as important or exciting as the opportunity to shape one's own environment. Ideally, a home should be a refuge where homeowner's can relax and recharge after a busy day. Arriving home should feel like the beginning of a vacation. There should be a positive aesthetic experience as you enter the drive, walk in the door and turn on the lights. Moving through the home should be similar to viewing your favorite paintings, one room at a time. In short, coming home, entertaining or just hanging out should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Creating a beautiful yet functional home can only happen when there is a successful partnership between architect and owner. It requires an architect that listens with empathy and sensitivity to the thoughts and wishes of the client and can interpret and transform these thoughts and wishes into a work of architecture. It also requires an architect who understands that designing a home with character and appeal takes a great deal of sensitivity to the characteristics of space, light and detail in order for it to be a great place to live. Finally, it requires an architect that can act as a guide through the complicated and lengthy process of designing and constructing a home. Below is a summary of how we can help homeowners maximize both their enjoyment and investment in their new or renovated home.
