About 

As MASTER BUILDER (Design-Builder) of sophisticated homes, I provide complete services from design inception   to completion of the built product. 

My operating philosophy:


GOOD DESIGN comes from complete dedication to the creative, appropriate and masterful marriage of attractive form and practical function.

GREAT BUILDING happens when all elements of GOOD DESIGN are carefully and artfully executed.
 

MASTER BUILDING, deeply rooted in centuries - old traditions of history's great artisan /  builders, uniquely applies multi-disciplinary knowledge,  skills and experience in the practice of design, engineering and construction to the creation of technologically enabled,  historically enriched  REAL WORLD ARCHITECTURE
