What is architecture?

Architecture is an expression of these things: life, heart, spirituality, unity, light, structure, rhythm, sensuality, peace, beauty, playfulness and joyousness.

Architecture is functionality unified into form and space.

It is a reflection of our soul, our connection to heaven and earth.

In architecture, we see who we are.

In public buildings and public places, architecture reflects the society; in private homes, it reflects the individual self.

Mission Statement

I believe it is essential to understand and synthesize the core essence, history, meaning, symbolism, needs and desires of each individual client.

The architect must be sensitive to the unique environment of each project site, in order to create a structure that is in harmony with nature and man.

The most satisfying projects are those that have been designed with this unifying concept in mind.
