Principal, Director of Residential

“Architecture is finding a balance between aesthetics and function. If orchestrated in a collaborative and inclusive fashion with all stakeholders, the results can enhance the lives and community of those who experience the structure both inside and out.”


About Brendan

Brendan has an uncle who is an architect and builder based in the Midwest.  “The home my Uncle Bruce and family live in was designed and built by him.  As a boy, I would visit many construction sites with Uncle Bruce and get to hear about the design concepts and construction challenges to make those concepts come to life,” explains Brendan.  While attending architecture school, Brendan’s summer breaks were spent working on construction sites as a carpenter doing rough framing, interior finish work, roofs and concrete form work.  “The adventure of designing and seeing how that built design affects the human condition is a never- ending joy and challenge,” he says.  For more than 27 years, Brendan has applied his passion and leadership to his clients’ projects by applying best practices to architecture for living environments.
