Considering that I am tasked with modifying environments in order to bring them to life in a way that introduces a piece of each homeowner/client into their physical world, logical and creative thinking must simultaneously and equally dominate project process with the initial assessment of evaluating what is a priority to the homeowner, the approach remains consistent. ...
Best practice for me is collaborative and step by step. The majority of projects that I asked to be a part of are preformed with flat rate job costing based on a precise timeline and deliverables....
The spaces that I work on and the people I work for and with are interactive. People live and work in the environments I create. I am firm believer that it doesn't matter how good something looks if it doesn't work form, consistently follows function in process and application.
Understanding of cost analysis - Changes are often introduced by existing building components that warranted specific modifications more reasonably than others/make sense
Does an environment reflect those who use the space
People and Places are diverse, contributing their own reflections to each project. Similarly, my role changes to best suit indivisual needs. Some Projects are established and completed within 3 hours providing new homeowners with just enough professional guidance for their DIY project while other projects captivate my attention and time over years.
The ongoing practice is to show homeowners and clients a way forward toward a space that meets their needs, best serves them, and provides clarity, even if the future next steps don't include me moving ahead.
