Your Story...Your Home

Your house is about your unique story.


Consider me, your Architect, as the author of your story.


Story Formed Architecture is a practice I have developed to ensure your house tells your unique story. This is done by first crafting a Story Line - an idea or concept that all the parts of your house flow from. Next, the story line is developed. I’ll guide you with your input and participation. Finally the story becomes a book (a set of blueprints) that provide for seamless construction to ensure your story is fully realized to your needs and desires.


I have been designing houses and light commercial projects for over 25 years. These small projects are the mainstay of my practice. Your project is not considered “filler” work, but something I am personally passionate about. As a Sole Practitioner, your project is guaranteed all of my expertise on every aspect of your project. This assures the highest level of professional care on all aspects of your project.

Story Formed Architecture

A Good Home Tells A Story

“A Good Novel must have a good story line. It needs to be interesting, inspiring, concise and complete.”

 

My approach to design for houses and light commercial buildings is to start with a strong concept or storyline. In a good story there are no random chapters, paragraphs or sentences as the novel is holistic-everything relates back to the storyline.  Good Architecture is holistic too.  This means the floorplans, elevations, sections, and details all relate back to the storyline or concept. Like a good novel, the storyline is developed first and the rest follow suit.

The process of designing a house is like writing a novel.  Beginning with the storyline, the author will compose the various chapters of the novel.  Authors don’t simply start writing from beginning to end and publish a first draft. Instead, the chapters are refined as the beginning, middle and end are developed.  This is also true for the architectural design process. The elements  - plans, sections, elevations – are developed and refined always relating back to the storyline or concept. 

My designs are Story Formed.  By working with me, as your Architect, your house will tell your unique, inspiring story.
