OpenScope Studio, San Francisco, CA, US, Principal

I am currently run OpenScope Studio with fellow Principal Ian Dunn.

OpenScope Studio is a San Francisco practice committed to exploring a wide range of project types at all scales, from architecture and urban planning to furniture design. The shift in size and context allows us to create informed design, and address multiple aesthetic, social, technical, and economic goals. Coming from diverse professional and personal backgrounds, we are united by a love of architecture and urbanism. We have the communication skills, technical know-how, inquisitiveness, collaborative spirit, and design skills to make places that people value. Recent work includes a cafe interior, a private home, a temporary activation project for the San Francisco Giants and a publication for the San Francisco Planning Department.
