Bringing spaces to life through details, lighting, and engaging the other senses is what fascinates me about architecture, and thus I strive to achieve in my work. I believe that a successful structure is where the technical side and the aesthetic side are perfectly balanced, and neither one competes. My years working in carpentry have given me the insight to appreciate and address the fine details that go into a building, as well as how to approach them as to not detract from the original design intent.
