Design Motto: Collected, not faddish.

Key Influence In Your Work: Homes are the new wellness pods! The most pressing trend will be air purification. Our firm is focused on Passive House design that uses a high-tech HRV system to recirculate fresh air into a home and act as a bodyguard against asthma, allergies and airborne toxins.

Choose Any Room In The World To Redo: A historical home amongst olive trees overlooking the Aegean in Greece. I’d finish it with all-white, concrete, stone and natural linens. The connection of my family roots and that Mediterranean lifestyle would be a dream come true.

If You Could Only Buy One More Thing For Your House: An outdoor wood-burning hot tub to sit in by our creek.
