"We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, the one thing against the other creates."                                                                                                                                                       Junichiro Tanizaki

"The Sun does not realize how wonderful it is until a room is made"       Louis Kahn

 

It has been said that "less is more".  Here, a dim and small 1/2 basement area with no nearby windows uses a lighter color and texture pallete and artificial lighting to highlight the simple, architectonic forms.  A new brick barrel vault ceiling adds a little character and some needed ceiling height, showing that "small can be more" also. New home design that allows for a variety of forms and spaces creates a special sense of place.

"The very essence of architecture consists of a variety and development reminiscent of natural organic life.  This is the only true style in architecture"       Alvar Aalto

 

While much of my work in the last few years has been involved with historically correct Santa Fe "styles",  I have also pursued more contemporary work, design competitions, urban planning commissions and the like.  The following is a small sample of some of that work, including examples of landscaping design and installations, drafting, illustration and other projects such as un-built designs.
