I graduated from the University Of Washington’s school of Architecture in 1968 and became a licensed architect in 1972. A major share of my design work has been commercial; besides building design my work includes space planning and interior design. Some of the notable work I’ve been involved with includes thirteen Nordstrom’s Place Two stores; these were spaces of 12 to 15 thousand square feet. My work included building and store front design, space planning and interior material selection. These stores preceded Nordstrom’s rapid growth of it’s big stores. Windermere Real Estate has been a major client since its inception. I have designed many free standing office buildings for Windermere along with the space planning, interiors design and furniture selection. Windermere’s projects include many space plans in existing buildings.
Over the last few years I have been involved with Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital and it’s growth plans; these included equine surgery, recovery and facilities for MRI. Their growth has included alternative medicine for small animal and a renovation of it’s small animal care facility. Seattle Veterinary Services, which is associated with Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, included a design within an existing warehouse structure. The design included a new mezzanine and a total medical treatment facility for small animal emergencies.
Over the years I have developed an approach to space planning which satisfies the clients needs with a concern as to the project budget. This work includes being available to work with the contractor and help with any options that may result in cost savings for the client. It is important to me that the client is proud of his space and happy with the functioning of his office.
