"There are no small roles, only small actors." The same may be said for architecture. With an appreciation of how design impacts our day-to-day lives, particularly in our homes, I formed Ginkgo House Architecture to focus on bringing a high level of creativity, thoughtfulness and detail to residential design as well as non-residential projects of a similar quality and scale.
As an architect, I see my role as an artist, technician, and trusted advisor to guide my clients through the myriad of steps and decisions involved with building and remodeling. I recognize the immensely personal nature of creating a space in which to live, laugh, raise families and entertain. And in doing so, I strive to create an open and collaborative process as a conduit to a rewarding product. Implicit in the process is creating buildings that are efficient, support the health of their inhabitants, and acknowledge the health of the greater community.
