Our Approach

We believe great design involves three steps:

Question

A project begins with a series of questions to help us better appreciate your style, life circumstances, concerns and dreams.

Communicate

Open, consistent, two-way communication is essential in any project. We will educate and keep you up-to-date on your project, and encourage you to let us know your questions and concerns.

Collaborate

Design is a discussion, a give and take of ideas and information. We will share our knowledge, work with your ideas, offer opinions and substantiate our point-of-view.

Hi, I’m David

I draw upon my background for every project

Feel. I grew up on a farm, where I learned to follow the pattern of the sun, respect a sense of place, and value simplicity, integrity and slowness. The core of my design sensibility — my interest in materiality, sustainability and connection to nature – was formed in Minnesota.

Know. Knowledge is the key to great interior architecture. Towards this end, I gained a degree in Interior Architecture then went to work with Hall of Fame designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy. Now, when working on both traditional and contemporary interiors, I work to observe a space, simplify detailing and clarify function.

Explore. I have traveled my entire adult life. The idea of exploration, of immersing myself into a culture, is what drives me in work and life. This curiosity first took me to study in Taiwan and Hong Kong, where I developed my cosmopolitan worldview and style.

Express. After college, I dressed movie sets. The goal was to tell the story visually. I learned that interiors provide the perfect stage for life. Now, when I design for a client, I work to reinforce life narratives through colors, textures and personal objects.

I hope you will join me on this journey through design.
