My Award Winning Architectural Practice, established in 2003, focuses on Residential Projects in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. I am a Licensed Architect with over 20 years experience and a Licensed General Contractor in California. I am one of the few Architects who has built what he has designed from the ground up. I acted as the Architect, the Developer and the Builder for a challenging new residence in the Oakland Hills. I currently do not practice as a Contractor, but this past experience proves invaluable when generating detailed construction documents in relation to the quality of the built project and how Design Details are executed and built.
My Award Winning Residential Projects range from Kitchen and Bath Remodels, Additions, Entire House Remodels, New Houses from the ground up and Large Multifamily and Townhouse Projects.
I offer complete Architectural Services, from the initial concept through to the final punch list. A typical scope of services includes: A comprehensive Design Phase, where I listen and assess my clients needs and offer several design solutions to choose and work from; Preliminary cost estimating with the assistance of a qualified Contractor to establish a Preliminary Construction Budget; A Design Development Phase where finishes, fixtures and finishes are reviewed and selected; Comprehensive and Detailed Construction Documents for Permit Approval, to Bid from, and to Build from; Review of Bids from qualified Contractors; and Construction Observation during the Construction of the Project.
I have a passion for creative problem solving and pursue a thorough attention to detail. This imaginative problem solving and attention to detail is documented in highly detailed drawings that focus on beauty and elegance, practicality, and solid construction principles. These highly detailed drawings result in accurate bids, fewer change orders and beautifully built projects. My projects feature industry standard sustainable materials and methods, and several feature in depth sustainable material selection and focus on energy efficiency.
I have served over 100 clients in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area.
