My work celebrates humble materials, subtle contrasts and finely-crafted details. I have a strong interest in modern regionalist design, local materials and familiar building forms juxtaposed against modern, open floor plans. I employ a minimalist, Shaker-like palette of details inspired by the site and natural surroundings.
Thirty by Forty Design Workshop was established in June of 2013 in a home I designed overlooking Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. In 2016, I designed and constructed the Long Studio to complement the Longhouse and serve as a full-scale model of my design principles and the latest in building science; this is the home for 30X40.
