Featured Project

Pierpont Apartments

I like the way this housing has been incorporated into a former warehouse district. It will help bring people to the neighborhood and support the small businesses that make it great. I really enjoyed learning from the owner, and gaining an understanding of how these large-scale projects work.

A Little Bit About Me

Greg is working on his master’s degree in architecture with a certificate in urban design while fortunately also working part-time for us as a designer.

To Greg, architecture is more than just the exterior envelope of a building. It relates to how we interact with built environments on a much larger scale. He loves historic downtown buildings and the beauty they add to their environments, and he encourages their preservation and adaptive reuse.

He hopes to help develop — and live in — highly diverse, mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhoods with his family. He loves learning from the patterns in an area’s progress, especially in developing countries like Mexico where he lived for two years. He’s also a fan of local materials and passive design, which uses architecture to minimize energy consumption.

Interests:

When he’s not busy with his architectural studies and design work, Greg enjoys biking, sketching, traveling and hiking.
