Architecture and family are my defining passions and I am without doubt a lucky woman to have them. These passions give me life and I live for them every single day. As a mother and a professional I work hard for both of these parallel goals, and I receive incredible rewards from both of them.
I’m so grateful for the wonderful gift of being a mother and every day I appreciate the joy of raising two little people, watching them grow, guiding and protecting them. Together, my husband and I enjoy the incredible moments that they give us, and the personal fulfillment of sharing this gift with family and friends. My professional life is equally as important to who I am, and architecture is my passion. I live for my projects and I don’t call them mine casually – I feel very connected to each one. I collaborate with my clients in the wonderful journey to realize an architectural project and I love to share the marvelous moment when you finally see the results.
As an architect I discovered the area where my two passions merge: Residential Architecture. I truly love it. Each time I meet with a new family in my office to discuss their future home is another great opportunity for me to give my best as an architect and as a person. My main goal is to build a home that each family will feel happy in, a house that, in its essence, supports them as a family. During the meetings leading up to the architectural concept sparks fly from the meeting room, rigidity and formality go out the door and our meeting turns into a coffee with friends. We finally end up building such a wonderful rapport for preferences and details, as well as shared understanding of how the family really works, that our projects come together in a fluid and natural way. A client once told me that working on her project with me was as delightful and simple as going for a walk. At the time, I only thanked her for such a sweet comment, but now I think I should have told her that it was just as gratifying for me. Every residential project is delightful for me, each one begins in the same way but we work under different circumstances and walk with different companions, and when we reach the summit I deliver the project for their enjoyment – and, that way, I can bring along someone new on the next journey.
