Erik’s goal is to transcend the traditional architect-client relationship, and function as one cohesive team where all involved listen and exchange ideas freely. This approach to personalized architecture is shaped by Erik’s years of design and construction experience. Erik always considers operational costs and productivity. He believes in integrating as much daylighting into a project as budget will allow. In addition to collaborating with clients and helping to shape the vision of a project, Erik assists the design team making sure clients are comfortable and excited about the work. According to Erik, good architecture can simply be listening to a clients’ needs and coordinating those needs through the design while being on time and on budget.
