Architectural Design

There is more beyond the style of cabinets, materials and 3D thinking in these projects. Can you imagine turning down the building because a bad design was implemented? I learned that bringing in your client, engineers, and contractors early and often to validate your design choices is mandatory.

Beyond aesthetics, it is my responsibility to understand the flows and different work areas that need to be integrated throughout the entire project — how to optimize performance and minimize the manufacturing costs.

The sink, preparation and cooking areas produce a narrow triangular work area, which leads to different types of kitchens.

More Than Cooking

More Than Cooking

A lot of home activities — cooking, cleaning, eating, drinking, socializing — take place in the kitchen. That's why it needs to be both beautiful and functional.

This is an example what you will see during the initial phase of your project in order to help you envision your project before construction actually begins — It's what's behind the walls and under the floors that really counts.
