On architectural renovations/additions, client’s often state that the design solution completely reorganized the way that they utilize a space or that the addition blends in seamlessly with the existing structure. Greg strongly believes if you are going to renovate a space, then make a dramatic change. On projects on vacant land, Greg will often work with the client’s dreams to create a unique structure, custom designed for that client.
Greg thinks three dimensionally and will often sketch design options to assist with the client’s understanding of the design. Flow, scale, proportion, texture, daylight, constructability, and neighborhood context are all attributive to Greg’s design process and completed work. As a design perfectionist, Greg is always searching and finding the perfect solution for his clients.
Greg’s attention to detail and his strong knowledge of residential construction have earned him the respect of many contractors and building officials. Local government officials and review boards appreciate Greg’s ability to understand the local land use and building codes and how he conveys that information back to them. Greg believes that by providing a thorough set of construction drawings produces a smoother, well-built project for the contractor and the homeowner.
Greg also brings his sense of humor to whatever he is doing. His approach with all stakeholders in a project is very non-confrontational. He believes that all members of the team bring value to the project. Whether it is a board presentation, construction meeting or a design charette, Greg will always find a way to crack a joke and make everyone smile.
