“In every design task, there are several possible solutions (thesis). To evaluate every available option (antithesis), and to resolve with the most valuable solution (synthesis), is our goal.”
I was born and raised in Italy; surrounded by natural majestic beauty and spectacular examples of everlasting architecture, I became attracted to the profession at an early age. My heritage has given me a good sense for "good design".
I attended the University of Architecture in Palermo, Italy and completed three years of the five year program. In 1978 after marrying my wife (a St. Helena native), I moved to California. In 1987 I received a Bachelor Degree from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, California, one of the finest architectural schools in the country.
Thereafter, I worked in architectural studios that shaped the development of my design ability & sensitivity. In 1993 I founded my own company.
My design philosophy is one that gives my clients the ability to fully participate in the design process. I make recommendations concerning the aesthetics, structure, life, and safety. I do not force my opinion on my clients, but rather I will strongly support and substantiate any opinion I may have.
I am very open to your suggestions and whatever needs you might have. It is my responsibility that the adopted solution will satisfy those needs, and at the same time create a beautiful building within the budget constraint.
These attributes have helped me establish a very good relationship with my past and present clients. All the projects I have had the opportunity to work on have been generated from client referrals. My staff includes licensed architects that will provide you with the most professional services.
