As a California architect, I have a deeply embedded connection to the geometries of landscape and to the abstract and variable qualities of light. The forms of my buildings respond to both: they are at one with the land and serve as receptive containers of natural light.
Design emanates from the site, from the clues and conditions found there. Each physical circumstance will suggest its own potential for a particular expression of scale, space and material. I believe a building must be poetic as well as rational. It must reveal its internal logic by giving a true sense of its structure.
Founded in 1975, my practice is run as a studio in which I am intimately involved with each project through design and construction – and where the sole purpose is the making of timeless architecture.
