“Analia and I consider ourselves extremely blessed to be able to practice the craft of architecture on a daily basis in this city with clients who share, encourage, and challenge our creative vision. We approach every project as a unique challenge- with new goals, opportunities, and objectives evolved in the earliest phases of work. Since architecture is a collaborative and social art form, we like to think of architects as creative enablers, and we embrace a team approach from the initial schematic concepts through the eventual development and construction of a given project. Finding a “place” on the right team, however, is always critical, and we’ve been very lucky to have somehow been paired with talented & inspired clients over the past years – those who share a passion for detail, proportion, material, and a knowledge of history and related sense of place.
We are inspired by the wonderful historical architecture of Northeast Ohio – from the beautiful Western Reserve small towns – still mostly intact – to the wonderful and varied fabric of its urban centers and industrial cores. We are just as inspired by the rural beauty of Ohio’s farms, fields, silos, and barns. While we believe that a responsible architect should do everything in his or her power to preserve our remaining historical buildings, we also look forward with optimism to developing new authentic architectural expressions and buildings that are just as representative of our current times and cultural values as those older buildings were of theirs…“
