Ed grew up on a dairy farm owned and operated by Swiss immigrant parents.  There was never a lack of work to be done and a culture of “nothing ever goes to waste” was compulsory. This was his introduction to sustainability and innovative use (and re-use) of what was at hand to solve the project needs that are always a part of a farming operation.  At an early age, Ed showed an affinity and passion for building projects.  Through encouragement from his family he turned this passion into a successful architectural career.  He takes great joy in helping clients discover their project’s true needs, designing the best way to address them, and then helping them see the vision to fruition. Ed is highly praised by clients for outstanding communication, schedule development, budget compliance and design quality.
