FROM START TO FINISH
Registered architect in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Virginia.
Revolve Design is a full service architecture firm specializing in a little bit of everything, including residential renovations and additions, adaptive reuse and new commercial construction.
As a sole practitioner architect, I personally guide every design project from start to finish. From mudrooms and master suites to commercial offices and retail spaces, you can be sure that I will be the one drawing the details, answering your questions, and visiting the job site. My goal is to deliver a project that meets your goals, reflects your vision, and makes you happy.
Achieving personalized and responsive results.
Creative problem solving, innovative design and meeting the Client?s bottom line are what guide my approach to residential and non-residential projects. In addition to aesthetics, other factors are considered during my design process, such as functionality, building codes, safety regulations, environmental sensitivity, and construction costs. From the start, I engage with the Client and team of Consultants (Site, Structural, MEP engineers) to communicate goals, raise concerns, and challenge and refine design concepts to bring about the best results. This hands-on approach has enabled me to create and maintain enduring relationships with my clients, working together to achieve personalized and responsive results.

In this interior renovation and addition, an existing kitchen that was isolated from the rest of the house is re-imagined into a bright and open high end kitchen and connected dining room.? Removing an existing interior wall, relocating the back door and expanding the window openings in the kitchen allowed a generous and light-filled kitchen giving the clients a bright and welcoming ‘headquarters’ in their home.? The kitchen and dining room interior renovation also prompted an enclosure of an existing exterior porch into a den, providing a clean and inviting space with big windows and a refined aesthetic in keeping with the character of the house.
