I’ve been asked many times by clients if I could design my own home what would it be. I go back and forth on style and location but one thing that is consistent is that it would be a smaller house. A house perfectly situated on the site with beautiful details and materials. I have always loved the details, it’s part of being an architect. While in Japan many years ago I was surrounded by inspiration. Every element was a thoughtful contribution to the whole. The most functional pieces were also pieces of art. The appreciation of craftsmanship and the use of quality materials is beauty exemplified. I try to instill this in all my projects for my clients so they can find the same appreciation.
