Process Architecture, Orlando, FL, US, Owner/Founder

Founder and principal architect of Process Architecture; an Orlando, Florida, architecture firm. As a studio of six, we collectively pursued our passion for modern architecture with every project. Our work was informed through close collaborations with clients, contractors, fabricators, artists, and the community at large.

We differentiated ourselves from the prevailing landscape of architects in this “large firm” town with a design-intensive studio that emphasized research with every project. Successful solutions that brought value to the community were realized by engaging our clients in the design process. Embracing these values, we carved out a successful niche for ourselves in the creation of innovative commercial, workplace, adaptive reuse, affordable housing, medical office, and sacred spaces.
