We pride ourselves on being service-forward with all of our clients. The availability and candor we offer is paramount and unmatched. We value honesty and transparency, and freely share our experience and knowledge of the process.
WORD brings a high level of energy, intensity and thoughtfulness to everything we take on. We are firm believers that architecture is a progressive social art, and necessarily collaborative by nature. Each project becomes a true partnership as we strive to infuse our clients’ needs, aspirations, personalities and beliefs into the work. The combination of those qualities with our own diverse experience and expertise produces uniquely tailored, extraordinary results. We seek to always transcend our clients’ aspirations and expectations.
We also believe that there are fundamental responsibilities that all of our designs must address. WORD champions a socially inclusive, publicly accessible, humanitarian and sustainable architecture. By implementing these convictions incrementally through our work, we are confidently leading by example and hoping to help others embrace these necessities of the modern world.

Communication is key. We carefully work with you to figure out all of your needs and then outline the working process with you. The construction process can be convoluted, so we do our absolute best to educate you about it and then walk step by step with you through the process. We will be your architect and designer, but also your advocate.
I have personally been practicing architecture in California for twenty years. I taught architecture at USC for seven years, am a member of the AIA, and have received numerous design awards for both residential and commercial work. Recently, I was named as an 'emerging talent' by the Monterey Design Conference, and as a 'Design Vanguard' by Architectural Record magazine, one of North America's pre-eminent architecture and design publications.
It varies by project, but our fees typically range between 10%-15% of the expected construction cost of a project, but are negotiable along with the scope of work. That said, remember that we'll be with you for the duration of design, permitting AND construction - overseeing everything.
