Building is a tremendous endeavor. Materials, people, and energy are needed to craft the places where we live, work, and gather. Some places stand the test of time, and in their presence and built form, reflect our collective continuum over time.

As an architect with 25 years of experience, I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of the building community and process, touching projects and places left behind by others and giving them renewed life for clients who see their value and want to inhabit them. Some are deeply meaningful places rooted in our architectural or cultural history. Others are everyday places that have lost their luster and no longer fulfill minimum requirements. We call this spectrum of work “modernization” at EYP, spanning projects from the restoration of the “Castle” at the Smithsonian to repurposing an abandoned building for a new use. Each project is unique and exciting, and every time, I am amazed at what can happen.
