services: I provide highly personalised architectural services to clients and I am involved in all stages of each project - underscored by solid working relationships with consultants and builders. Projects encompass new houses, additions and alterations to existing houses, and boutique retail, restaurant and workplace environments, but also i view identity design as problem solving, and I love a challenge. The end result needs to contribute to your business success, not merely beautify the universe. I like distilling complex ideas into clear visuals. In my approach, sustainable design integrates with the aesthetic ideal, in a dialectical relationship that leads to the design of buildings and objects of high structural and aesthetic quality. Architectural projects draw inspiration from the natural, social and cultural characteristics of the places where one is used to live. A "human-scale" method capable of satisfying the social, economic and cultural needs of individuals, thus allowing the creation of comfortable and stimulating environments. My goal is to identify a strategy involving planning, composition and materials, capable of introducing dense insertions into the landscape, successfully imparting new “energy” to the context in which we are working, “energy” which is consistent with the often unexpressed potential of the setting as a whole.
