Values
 

I seek to make thoughtful buildings and spaces that have an enriching effect on those who occupy them and the environments in which they are constructed.

I am interested in ideas of proportion, scale, arrangement and assembly, and am concerned with the specific conditions - physical, ecological, social and cultural - in which architecture situates itself. It is through the sensitive consideration and handling of these things that I believe good buildings are made.

I employ a range of methods to develop projects, but none more meaningfully than the use of physical models. Occupying the territory between imagination and reality, models serve as a bridge between these two worlds; transitional objects that permit the examination and communication of ideas with clarity and precision.

Good architecture is ordinarily a product of skilled and committed people working together in an environment of mutual respect, trust and patience, and it is precisely these conditions that I seek to foster in every one of the projects with which I am involved.
