I am a Scandinavian-American architect with strong connections to Denmark and the Danish design tradition. Trained in the Nordic design tradition at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, my Scandinavian approach to design has evolved to create work characterized by timeless simplicity, refined elegance, and careful refinement of detail.
My award-winning portfolio of work, much of which has been published widely in international journals and books, is often associated with the subtle aesthetic qualities of Japanese and Danish minimalism.
I have extensive experience designing custom homes of varying budgets, and see avery project as a close collaboration between the homeowner and myself. I strive with each project to provide maximum value to the completed work while respecting all aspects of the homeowner's program and budget. Please feel free to contact me for client testimonials, and I invite you to click on my website and social media links below to learn more about my small architectural practice.
'm Danish living in California. At the moment I am working with Todd Verwers for the third time on a complete remodel of my home in Palm Springs. I have only one word to say about Todd: Genius !! Oh... and one more: The nicest person you will ever want to meet. We had 12 people for a cocktail party last night. All doors open, fire places going, the house lit like a jewel box, people moving in and out, the flow fantastic because of……. YOU! I love my house. Henrik Rasmussen & Bruce Benzler
I prefer to meet directly with the client to review the project parmameters and program, and to see the building lot or existing home, depending on whether the project is for new construction, or and addition or remodel. Then I perform due diligence with the local building authorities to flush out all project requirements and constraints. Once we have signed a services agreement, I perform Schematic design, Design Develpment, and Construction Documents services to fully document the project for bidding and construction. I usually also represent the client through bidding and construction, and perform construction administration services as the client's agent.
I am a dual US/Danish citizen with a strong Nordic design background. I have a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the United States, and have completed graduate studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
I have been licensed as an architect in California since 2001, and have extensive international experience over a broad range of project types, including custom residential projects. I am able to work on projects over the entire United States.
Fees for architectural services vary from project to projact, and are dependent on various parameters, including project and services scope, budget, etc. Fees can generally be negotiated and tailored to the client's needs.
