Organization

I am a sole practitioner with an architectural office in San Bruno CA. I design and administer commericial projects as well as renovations of existing single-family residences.

I have a personal interest in the process of adapting existing buildings for new uses. To me, breathing new life into an existing buildings is an exciting and responsible opportunity appropriate to this era of energy and resource conservation.

My work includes seismic evaluations of existing buildings and managing projects to strengthen existing commercial and residential buildings against earthquake forces.

I maintain an array of consultants and associates to assist with projects needing specialists in landscape design, energy conservation, soils evaluation, civil engineering and land surveying, roofing and waterproofing consultation, and structural, mechanical or electrical engineering.

My residential design work pays special attention to the issues of aging to minimize and probably, avoid architectural barrier for residents' current or future physical disabilities.

My practice is fully computerized. I use "ArchiCAD" by Graphisoft to generate drawings as well as word processing, spreadsheet and PDF generating programs. I also use "Sketch-Up" by Google and several structural engineering programs to perform gravity load and seismic resistance calculations.
